Bronchitis is an inflammatory condition in which the mucus membranes in the lungs or bronchial passages become irritated. As the membrane swells it narrows the airways in the lungs causing you to cough, sometimes accompanied by phlegm and or a feeling of breathlessness. Bronchitis can be acute, lasting only a week or more, or chronic, lasting 3 months or more.
