    I can't believe that I got bronchitis with such a nice weather (I slept in the same room with my father for a week and he got it from somewhere and gave it to me).


    Is there any relief from the thick mucous excretions? I see in supermarkets some teabags that you boil them, etc. Is there anything effective?

    I can take mucolytics, but I am afraid that the thin mucous flow further down to the lungs and cause problems.

    Any idea?

    Guys, if I go to the hospital, will they inject me corticosteroids for my heavy upper resp infection? I am exhausted for 8 days now, but I don't want to waste my time.

    Speak to your GP to get advice.

    Is it me and this GP I have or GPs in UK practise defensive medicine and never cooperate with patients?

    We can't tell you what treatment you need. Antibiotics are the probable course of treatment - and I don't think they come under defensive medicine. Go to your GP if you're ill.

    I went, he gave me antibiotics, but I asked for corticoids too and he only gave me nasal, but they do nothing to me but irritate my nostrils, I need systemic.
