Re: Why do I keep getting bronchitis? Help.
Hmm, well, when I was younger, like from age 5 or so until 15, I tended to get 3 or so colds a year (as kids do) but every one would go to my chest and I'd get bronchitis. I wasn't THAT sick, but I'd take 1-3 days off school...then it just abruptly stopped. I'd still get 1-2 colds a year but they were just confined to the nose.
Then when I was about 20 I started smoking and I found once a year I'd get this horrid bronchitis cough thing that'd make me feel like death for about 3 days and then the cough would remain for about 3 weeks. Ugh. Disgusting.
I quit smoking last July and have had 4 colds since (I usually don't get that many, but *shrug* I dunno) but no cough whatsoever.
Maybe your body is run down? Allergies can cause excess mucous which can lead to a susceptability to bronchial coughs...if you take anti-biotics each time, this may not help. I've not had to have them for many, many years and am pleased, cause I do worry they can actually weaken the immune system.
Good luck. Bronchitis sucks.
