    A long fall bronchitis

    I have had a cough now for 58 days. It started on August 26th and had not stopped. Some days are better than others. At first I thought it was my allergies, ragweed etc.. being near a rug at work loaded with dust mites for a few weeks nearly did me in. I finally figured out that was some of my problem. Then in early October I was diagnosed with viral bronchitis after a chest x ray. It showed inflammation in the bronchial tubes. Everything else on the x ray was fine. I also had blood work done and that came back normal. I have used an inhaler for a few weeks now as well as taking Singular at night. I also use my other allergy meds, Vicks on my feet and chest, taking vitamins, drinking lots of water etc. I am a non smoker. I am heading back to my acid reflux doctor and ENT to see if we can figure out what is really going on. I have never had an annoying cough last so long. How long does bronchitis last? Any thoughts on this? Thank you for any repiles!

    Re: A long fall bronchitis

    It can. Do you not have the good cough syrup? That's the ONLY thing that gets my annual 28 day viral version under control. I also highly recommend Alka Seltzer Plus for Colds for the other symptoms.
