Hello Charli XX.

Pneumonia is an infection of the airways leading to pneumonia or an infection of the lungs. "Lung infection" is a generic term for several conditions, including pneumonia and bronchitis.

People with a chest infection almost always bring a cough, phlegm (thick mucus) from the breast. The common cold is an infection that has caused by coughing, but if infection of the nose and throat is limited, is much less likely to lead to big problems.

Symptoms of adult respiratory infection

The symptoms of acute bronchitis and pneumonia can be similar - for example, produces a cough, sputum (thick mucus) and a high temperature. But the biggest difference between the symptoms of acute bronchitis and pneumonia, pneumonia is more serious.

1. Acute bronchitis

Acute bronchitis is generally mild, self-limiting disease (a disease that disappears by itself, without) the need for medical treatment. The symptoms of acute bronchitis, includingE:

The cough usually lasts between 7-10 days continue, but up to three weeks. Acute bronchitis can cause headaches and feel generally unwell. However, these symptoms may be caused by dehydration. Therefore, it is very important to drink plenty of fluids.

In the recently emerged from a lung infection. I had very bad chest, sputum (if thats the green signs of infection), persistent cough sounds wet and / or feels like phlegm, wheezing, tired, breathless. My advice to doctors to get some antibiotics, and often treated with amoxicillin, there are many people who have been diagnosed with pneumonia. Your doctor may tell you, if you have to listen to the chest! Hope you feel better soon
