Doctors at Entira Family Clinics say bronchitis is going around right now.

Bronchitis is basically a chest cold, with the symptoms like a cold. Doctors say you may also notice facial pain and a fever.

Doctors recommend getting checked out if the symptoms last more than seven to 10 days, and if they are getting worse rather than better.

Doctors say their biggest concern with bronchitis is that it can turn into pneumonia.
