Chest cold symptoms

See if your cough is a sign of a chest cold

While often originally caused by the same virus, a chest cold is distinguished from a simple common cold in that the infection is focused, of course, in the chest. The term chest cold usually refers to a condition called acute bronchitis, which affects a patient’s respiratory tract and continues down into the lungs. The infection leads to swelling and increased mucus production in the lower respiratory tract, which causes coughing and sensitivity in the chest area.
