In brief: See doctor...

If you have acute bronchitis, seek a doctor's help if your symptoms are worsening over time, if you develop acute shortness of breath and if your symptoms do not completely resolve after 7-10 days.
If you have chronic bronchitis, seek a doctor evaluation if you develop symptoms of infection, and/or shortness of breath worsens.
