In brief: Acute or chronic?
Acute bronchitis, due to an infection, is treated with antibiotics if due to bacterial infection and symptom control if due to virus.
If you have chronic bronchitis, a form of COPD usually due to smoking, the treatment includes bronchodilator and steroid inhalers and oxygen therapy, if the oxygen level is low. So, see your doctor so the type of bronchitis can be diagnosed and treatment rendered.
