Does the cough getting worse with Bronchitis mean the person is getting better?
It started out as a dry hacking cough over 3 weeks ago. It turned into a productive cough a couple of days ago and she is now having coughing fits where she ends up throwing up. It sounds terrible! Does the worsening cough, being productive, mean she's actually getting better since she's coughing the junk up now? I'm just curious if this is part of the course of viral Bronchitis or if it's indicating this may be turning into Pneumonia. As of now she has no fever or chest pain.

Sorry if this rambled about...I'm very tired.

nope -it means you need to treat the cough!! use your inhaler & nebulizer for these episodes, run a vaporizer in the home, use a nasal rinse, and see your doctor.

keep an eye on it of course. make sure there is no blood (brown or red) in with the phlegm, but usually, it means the body is getting rid of the mucous it doesn't need anymore.

go to the doc to ease your worries, but it's probably just a case of "gets worse before it gets better"

i went to this site when the girls and i were sick. gave some decent info. most important...DON'T SWALLOW IT BACK DOWN

It could be either. The body could be breaking the stuff up and getting rid of it. It could be that it is settling in. Low grade temp would indicate it turning for the worse while no temp and increase in either energy or appetite means its getting better. It could also be an indication post nasal drip if a head cold or something is starting on top of it all. Just like most things, keeping an eye on it is the best course of action. Monitor the temp and such. Watch for headaches that don't seem to go away and behavior patterns that are out of the norm.
