Is my bronchitis still contagious? Antibiotics 4 days, light cough (clearing throat) little bit of yellowish mucus, no urge to cough.

In brief: Hard to tell

A person with a resolving cough may still be contagious after a few days, although he likely is spreading fewer germs by then.
It is very hard to tell if one individual is contagious at any one moment in time, during a resolving cough or cold.
