Excess mucus is a complication of asthmatic bronchitis and can increase breathing difficulties.
It is important to keep mucous secretions thin by staying hydrated.
Drinking water can help to relieve many bronchitis symptoms. Using a cool mist humidifier can also make it easier to clear mucus, as well as thin secretions in the lungs.
Smoking, including exposure to secondhand smoke, increases your risk of bronchitis and damages your airways, so it must be avoided. The same is true for air pollution.
Asthmatic bronchitis is a respiratory illness that happens when asthma leads to bronchitis. This can cause inflammation of the airways and mucus production which, in turn, leads to coughing and difficulty breathing. A variety of medications can help you to breathe, or to manage the mucus and the cough. Lifestyle changes can also help in treatment as well as prevention.
