Bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, which are the airways that connect the windpipe to the lungs. Children can get bronchitis from viruses being passed around at school, but it may actually be asthma. At Pediatric Asthma Specialist, we can diagnose and treat your child properly so that they can live a happier, healthier lifestyle.
How do you know if your child has bronchitis? The biggest sign is a persistent cough that usually brings up a thick mucus. Bronchitis is different than asthma in that it also brings about headaches, chills, a mild fever, a tight chest, and a wheezing breath. Bronchitis makes it harder for air to pass in and out of the lungs, so it is important to get treatment for it as soon as you notice the symptoms.
