In brief: Treatment...

See your doctor to determine if the acute bronchitis is due to bacterial or viral infection.
Drink plenty of fluids, rest as much as possible, avoid smoking. If the infection is due to bacteria, finish the antibiotics prescribed by your doctor. If there is wheezing, your doctor can prescribe bronchodilator and steroid inhalers, if needed.
