I was diagnosed a bacterial bronchial infection in Dec. 29 of 2016. Took azithromycin. No change. Another round of the same antibiotic which I started taking Jan. 9th of this year. No fever. No other symptoms. I have been coughing up green mucous since Dec. of 2015 when I was diagnosed with a viral upper respiratory infection in the ER but the ER doctor did no tests and told me that "Everyone has a virus right now. The bacterial infection was confirmed now with a test. What can I do to get rid of the green mucous and the fatigue and get well? I am truly worried. I go in to see my doctor on the 13th, of Jan. He wants me to try Cefdinir but I was tested and told I am allergic to Penicillins. Help please. I have never felt so tired and sick. I am 68 yrs old. I am open to all Natural Remedies!
Currently I am taking Guaifenesin (decongestant) every 4 to 6 hours. Inhaling steam. Drinking 80 ounces of fluids daily. Using saline nasal wash (I have a discharge from sinuses but no pain or pressure). Lung X rays clear, blood panels show white cel count high. Not pneumonia says the doctor. No heart problems. Blood pressure fine.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. This bronchitis is associated with your post nasal dripping and nasal congestion. Treatment is supportive and symptomatic and nothing to worry about. Just wait and observe. Symptoms will improve in a couple of days.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
