Depends on where: Depending on where in the chestwall an infection is, the symptoms will be different. Symptoms also depend on how big and how bad the infection is.

The symptoms of my chest infection developed in a month from bloody mucus to sob n chest discomfort. Does that mean it'll take as long to heal?
Pneumonia: Chest infections or pneumonias can sometimes take weeks to months for the inflammation to go down. And even though the infection has been cleared, the symptoms can linger that long too.

My sympathy!: Facial and/or dental pain, fever, discolored mucous discharge with nose blowing. The majority are caused by viral infections and last 4 weeks or less. 0.5 - 2% progress to bacterial infection. Antibiotic resistance has increased to the 30-40% range. Cough, sore throat, facial tenderness may accompany. Your symptoms: do you have pneumonia? You need a chest x-ray, exam, and maybe blood work. ...Read more
I had a pft which shows "asthma". I have no problem inhaling fully, but exhaling is hard. My symptoms have gotten much worse after a chest infection.
Need evaluation: Pft can only show the degree of obstruction, whereas the diagnosis of asthma is a clinical one. For pts with asthma, chest infections can make things worse due to flare up of their airway inflammation. Sounds like you require urgent evaluation to treat acute symptoms & improve yr asthma management in the long run. Please talk to your doctor or an asthma specialist immediately. ...Read more
Something has happened to my lungs 5 months ago when I had a chest infection and they won't get better. All symptoms point to copd. Pft showed asthma.
Treatment...: Treatment for asthma includes bronchodilator and steroid inhalers. If symptoms continue, there are other treatments, including evaluation by an allergist to aggressively treat diagnosed allergies. A lung specialist can also assist the family doctor with diagnosis and treatment, so see a lung doctor as well if symptoms persist. If pft is not showing chronic obstruction, COPD is unlikely. ...Read more

I went to the doctor and she said I had a upper respiratory tract infection. I was wondering if it was normal for the symptoms of phlegm and tightness in chest to come back soon?
Depends on Tx.: Upper respiratory infections tend to be viral in origin, and therefore resolve on their own even without treatment. Recurrence could mean that it's simply not over yet, or that you acquired another infection, or that it's not truly a viral URI. You may need a re-evaluation. ...Read more

I have some kind of lung infection. My doctor gave me bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) 800-160 for 10 days and my symptoms persist. Acne on my back and ache in chest on right?
Reword this question: "Some kind of lung infection" means nothing. Cough? Fever? What is the DR's diagnosis? Any other meds? Ache in chest due to cough? How long ill? Effective therapy of bronchitis is time + inhalers. Antibiotic therapy is not effective for viral infections. While Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is not the first choice for acne, it can be effective. If the acne is improved after 3 months, continue the med. Usually just 1 a d ...Read more
