What are the symptoms of acute bronchitis?
Coughing is the most common symptom of acute bronchitis. The coughing begins
early in the disease and usually lasts about 10 to 20 days as it gradually
subsides. About 50% of individuals have a productive cough with either clear,
yellow, greenish, or occasionally blood tinged sputum. The other symptoms may
muscle aches, and
Children may also have a
runny nose and mild
fever and gag or
vomit mucus. If a
person develops fever,
shortness of breath, cyanosis or
chest pain, they likely
have another problem but not acute bronchitis.
