In brief: Bronchiectasis

So many options: hydration and mucus clearance, chest physiotherapy, bronchodilators, anti inflammatory medications, antibiotics, pulmonary rehab.
....Or a combination of all the above. You need a good pulmonologist to work with you.

If bronchiectasis is a result of an immunodeficiency, typically CVID - combined variable immunodeficiency - gamma globulin infusions may provide protection against future pulmonary infections.

In brief: Antibiotics

Antibiotics for acute infections, respiratory therapy, avoid smoking.
