Hi Anonymous and thanks for your question.

Bronchitis is the inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes – airways that connect the windpipe (trachea) to the lungs. This lining is very delicate and is what produces mucus. Its job is to protect the lungs by keeping sickness-causing particles that make it past the nose from entering the lungs.

Dairy products (such as milk, cheese, and ice cream) can increase the amount of mucus your body makes. It's therefore suggested that people with bronchitis avoid dairy products. Assuming that you are talking about a float as a drink that includes ice cream it would not be in the best interests of your health to have one. 

Hope that helps,
