Bronchitis and pneumonia

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Dr. William Ferrar is seeing many cases of bronchitis and pneumonia at his Westham practice.

Generally he is able to treat the problem with an antibiotic.

If you are a smoker or you are short of breath, a chest x-ray is needed.

You know it is serious if cough and/or wheezing persisting longer than 2 weeks; especially when usual cold symptoms weren't initially present.
