In brief: Bronchitis

Mucinex-d or Robitussin (guaifenesin) CF otc and lots of fluids also you can try a cool mist humidifier in the bedroom.

In brief: Two main things

1. Guaifenesin (the active ingredient in Mucinex (guaifenesin) and robitussin) 2.
Use a humidifier or vaporizer. You can also take a deep breath and hold it for three seconds to help prevent accompanying atelectasis (small areas of lung collapse) see your doctor if this does not clear. You may need medical treatment.
