12 Common Signs & Symptoms of Bronchitis

Mucus Production

Another symptom is mucus production [2]. It is closely related to a cough. You will develop this symptom after two to three days of infection. There are many causes of mucus production such as the flu, cold, and even allergies. However, when it is accompanied by a dry cough and bad breath, it might be a sign of bronchitis. The color of mucus might be clear, white, green, or yellow depending on the level of infection. In rare cases, your mucus might be streaked with blood. When you find mucus in your blood, you can contact your physician for the proper evaluation of your condition. When blood is not present, you can drink plenty of liquid to thin your phlegm. It will make easier to cough up. An Adequate amount of rest is also important for fast recovery.
