Dear Anonymous,

thank you for your kind words of encoragement.

However, do realize this article pertains to bronchiolitis and not bronchitis. What's the difference?

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchi. Can effect adults and children. Caused by viruses (influenza) mostly, but can be super imposed by bacterial infection also.

Bronchiolitis is an inflammation of the bronchioles. It effects mainly children and caused by RSV (50% of the times) or other viruses. Most commonly during winter and spring months.

Bronchi branch in the lungs and give rise to bronchioles.

Thus the approach to kill the 2 different microbes that cause the condition and the treatment vary by a more than a couple of degrees.

Best regards,
