I was just curious of the particular ways to avoid getting bronchitis? I have had bronchitis once in my life and that was after I stayed for an extended time at a relatives house, and I never get sick. I am good with washing my hands but I think maybe just being in new environment with a new set of germs through my immune system off.
There are many ways to attempt to prevent it, but it might not be easy. Don't smoke is one way. Another way is to try to keep your congestion down. Sometimes our gunk goes from our nose down to our lungs while we are sleeping. So you want to get yourself as dried out as possible before you go to bed.
i went to that case for about 2 months from acute bronchitis to chronic bronchitis. Theres no way to prevent acute bronchitis. how ever the risk of brochiris and complication can reduced through not smoking and getting flu shot. brochitis do not require medical treatment. Doctors advice with people who have acute brochitis to rest and drink a lot of water to keep mucus thin and easy to cought up. doctors recommend to use vaporizer or humifidifier, standing in or near a hot shower, drinking hot tea and soup,Breathing to steam from sink a hot water. if the patient have a fever the doctor will recommend to take ibuprofen or aspirin to reduce fever.
if the bronchitis is caused by any bacterial infection the doctor will recommend antibiotic to reduced the infection causing the bacteria.
in some cases the doctor will recommend brochodilator to inhaled and exhaled and helps to airways to open.
How do you know if what you are experiencing brochitis, or just normal congestion? I am not sure if I have ever had it but have had some bad congestion, but didn't go to the Dr. for a diagnosis.

I have suffered from Asthma since I was a child. I had two bouts of the flu in my life from age 0 to 49 years old.
Then, I was assigned to a school building where most of the teachers fell ill that winter. I had to battle two bouts of bronchitis.
The first time I was home for about one week. I recovered with the help of a regimen of steroids. The second bout occurred only two months later, I was flat on my back for a month. I was scared I would not recover. I recovered well.
I left that building. I never was sick like that again. That was years ago.
My diet never changed. My disposition and outlook on life has remained the same. The only things that have changed were: I no longer teach in a stressful environment, and I no longer teach in that building. I have experienced less stress over these past few years.
My mom, who has some medical background, says that one of the ways to avoid it is keeping my feet in warmth in winter and during the cold days of spring. It will keep me away from the opportunity of catching cold. For those who don't know, it's a gateway disease to bronchitis.
