Breathe Easier. Kick The Cough

Bronchitis & Coughs

A cough can develop for several reasons and it may not stem from a lung infection or cold symptoms. In fact, even excessive saliva can make a person cough. However, the most common reason for a cough is a lung infection. Bronchitis develops when the lining of the bronchial tubes becomes inflamed and restricts air from traveling to the lungs. Depending on your condition, a person may experience a dry cough, which is a sign of environmental pollutants entering your lungs such as smoke or allergies, or a person may develop a wet cough, which is a result of a lung infection that produces mucus, causing a person to cough as a way of clearing the mucus. Bronchitis can develop from severe conditions and chronic cough conditions caused by an upper respiratory infection or pneumonia. At EZCare Clinic San Francisco, we evaluate your symptoms and provide a personalized treatment plan that may include over-the-counter antihistamines or prescription cough suppressants.
