Couldn't find what you looking for?


I was told I have acute bronchist. They did start me on meds. How long will I be contagious? Well a sauna help me breath better


Hi phillygirl! I don't know what is the reason of your bronchitis but if you are afraid of being contagious probably is a viral or bacterial infection. In most of that cases it is a viral infection and as long as you have symptoms you are contagious. If your doctor thought it was bacterial and he gave you antibiotics ( you didn’t actually mentioned what for medicine did you get) , but also bacterial bronchitis is very contagious, especially in the first week. you should also be indoors while during the treatment. a sauna is normally a public place so i wouldn't go to avoid other people to get sick. But you can use a humidifier while taking a shower if you want.
