Bronchitis is the inflammation of the mucus membrane of the bronchial tube that carries air from the lungs. As the membrane thickens and swells, the narrow airways of the lungs shut down resulting in coughing and breathlessness. People who have bronchitis often cough up thickened mucus that can be colored or colorless. Bronchitis is usually of two forms: acute and chronic.

Acute bronchitis usually begins with symptoms of common cold like runny nose, fatigue and sore throat. Dry cough is usually the first sign of acute bronchitis.
