Chronic Bronchitis

Bronchitis is an infection of the lungs that can cause coughing, shortness of breath and chest discomfort. Commonly, the infection resolves over a few weeks and can be managed at home if it isn't too severe.

A single instance of bronchitis isn't necessarily a reason to worry. However in a person with chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis, the swollen lungs are more vulnerable to infection. Repeated infections can be a sign of other chronic lung problems.2‘Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis.’ NHLBI, NIH, www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health-topics/hypersensitivity-pneumonitis
