Date:11/29/2016

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- This time of year, it is important people are aware of the differences between a cold, bronchitis and pneumonia.  Knowing the distinctions will allow people to better understand treatments available and when to seek professional help.

USA Medical shares 3 tips from ABC 4 Utah on the differences between a cold, bronchitis and pneumonia:

  • Colds may be characterized by a clear runny nose, cough, and a low-grade or lack of fever. While it is one of the most common infectious diseases, it is usually mild and resolves without treatment.
  • Bronchitis happens when air passages are inflamed. Possible symptoms may include: a frequent cough with mucus, wheezing, fever, and a lack of energy. Brought on by a viral infection, acute bronchitis is more prevalent of the two basic types. Chronic bronchitis is a cough that lasts 2 to 3 months annually, for at least two years—typically caused by smoking.
  • Pneumonia produces fluid in the lungs due to an infection. Symptoms may include a cough, fever and difficulty breathing. Older adults, babies and people with other illnesses may need to be hospitalized for treatment.
