In brief: Treatment...

If you have symptoms of infection, like fever, chills, decreased appetite, body aches, cold symptoms, etc.
, then you most likely have acute bronchitis which is treated w/ antibiotics. If you have no other symptoms, then it is likely chronic bronchitis, a form of copd. See your doctor for evaluation and treatment. If you smoke, you need to quit to decrease airway inflammation.
