What Are the Causes And Effects of Bronchitis?

Q:
What are the causes and effects of bronchitis?

A:
The same viruses that give you a cold or the flu usually also cause bronchitis. Bacteria can cause bronchitis as well.

In both cases, as your body fights off the germs, your bronchial tubes swell and produce more mucus. You will have smaller openings for air to flow, which can make it harder to breathe.
