HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Bronchitis is a difficult illness to deal with.

This week in our Neighborhood Health Watch we show you how to cope with the problem.

Dr. Lauren Goode is treating bronchitis.

Symptoms include cough, wheezing and fatigue. It is usually not associated with fever.

Wash hands well and frequently and cover cough with tissues to prevent spread if you have bronchitis.

Treat with increased fluids and plenty of rest. Stay home from work or school if possible. Use acetaminophen or ibuprofen for low grade fever.
