Chronic bronchitis - common causes and symptoms

Chronic bronchitis - common causes and symptoms

Małgorzata Kruk (MPharm)

 If you notice you have a chronic, persistent cough for at least 3 months a year and it is accompanied by the expectoration of secretion and phlegm, it may mean that you suffer from chronic bronchitis.

A wet cough is not the only symptom of the disease. When you suffer from chronic bronchitis you may also feel weakness, difficulties in breathing and lethargy. These symptoms are typical of the disease and require a consultation with a physician and a proper treatment.

The most frequent cause of chronic bronchitis are recurring viral infections of the respiratory tract which have not been fully treated. Also smoking (active and passive) and exposure to dust may increase the risk of damage to the cilium epithelium of the lower respiratory tract. This damage can lead to chronic bronchitis.
