HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Lauren Goode is seeing cases of bronchitis.

Cough is the main symptom and bronchitis can also be associated with fatigue.

It is usually caused by viruses, often the same ones that cause the common cold. To prevent, wash your hands.

Treatment of bronchitis is usually symptomatic. Drink a lot of fluids, take medicine to help quiet the cough and get plenty of rest. Symptoms usually resolve in 7-10 days.
