In brief: Infection...

Acute bronchitis is due to infection of the airways, either viral or bacterial.
Avoid contact with sick people as much as possible and wash your hands frequently. If you smoke, quitting can decrease your rate of this infection.

Your immunity is somehow affected...it may be the weather or changes in weather. Take vitamin D, no smoking (if you do), and consider an evaluation by a Chinese Medicine practitioner. There are herbs that can boost your immune system.One herb I use a lot is elderberry.....
