Bronchitis is an infection which causes the lungs to become irritated and inflamed. Usually the infection will get better on its own however there are some cases where the infection can become worse. If the infection continues for more than three months it becomes “chronic bronchitis”, to which there is no cure, though medicine can be administered to relieve the symptoms, which include coughing, sore throat, wheezing or blocked nose.
There are certain causes of this disease, which could be avoidable. Poor working environments can increase the risk of chronic bronchitis as certain substances amplify the condition, such as:
- Grain dust
- Textiles (fabric fibres),
- Ammonia, strong acids or chlorine
- Tobacco smoke.
