Acute Bronchitis in Children - Treatments

Acute bronchitis normally goes away on its own. Most treatments are meant to help relieve symptoms and include:

  • Medication for fever
  • Cough medicine or medication for rhinitis
  • Vaporiser to help the child breathe easier
  • Increased fluid intake to help keep the child’s air passages moist and better able to get rid of germs and other irritants
  • Avoiding smoke or fumes

The doctor may prescribe bronchodilators to help open the tight air passages in the lungs if the child is wheezing.

As acute bronchitis is usually caused by a virus, antibiotics are usually not needed. Antibiotic is prescribed only if the bronchitis is caused by bacteria.
