General Health


Bronchitis usually causes a cough and sometimes a burning pain behind the sternum/ breast bone. The cough usually starts dry but later on, produces some sputum.

Bronchitis is an infection of the airways, usually by a viral micro-organism. A bronchitis cough sometimes lingers for a while and can become irritating and difficult to get rid of.

We can prescribe you with medication to treat the cough and inflammation of the airways. Additionally, we can provide guidance on managing factors at home that may trigger the cough.
