FindaTopDoc Delves In On One of The Most Googled Medical Questions, Is Bronchitis Contagious?
Date:4/28/2017

It's not always common knowledge whether or not a certain sickness is contagious. In fact, there are a number of illnesses that are unclear as to whether or not they are contagious, and most people don't know the answer off the top of their heads. Bronchitis is one of these illnesses. So, FindaTopDoc took a look into the matter.

They discovered that the main reason why it's hard to answer the question, "Is Bronchitis Contagious?", is that there are different types of bronchitis, and only one type is contagious.

Acute bronchitis
Acute bronchitis is the contagious kind. It is caused by a cold or flu virus, and can last for one week to one month. Since cold and flu viruses are contagious, this type of bronchitis can be contagious, too. Each year, there are more than 10 million people diagnosed with acute bronchitis.

Chronic bronchitis
Chronic bronchitis is not contagious, and it is usually caused by irritants like cigarettes or dust. Chronic bronchitis is a serious condition, which typically lasts for months at a time. You will require medical attention if you have chronic bronchitis. It is hard to treat and difficult to get rid of, especially if you are exposed to cigarette smoke or dust.

Chronic bronchitis usually continues to come back as well. Most patients who suffer from chronic bronchitis experience the condition more than once a year.

Asthmatic bronchitis
As the name suggests, bronchitis can also be brought on by asthma. This type of bronchitis is definitely therefore not contagious, as it can only develop in an asthma patient.

Symptoms of bronchitis
Bronchitis is a condition in which the bronchi, or tubes that direct air into your lungs, become inflamed. The inflammation can be due to a cold or flu, irritants, or asthma. People with bronchitis will usually experience:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Pain, discomfort or soreness in the chest
  • Low fever
  • Fatigue
  • Body chills
