Symptoms of bronchitis in children and adults do not differ. A disease of the respiratory system has the same symptoms, but the intensity of the manifestation may vary. In children and adults with weak immunity, the symptoms of bronchitis will be more difficult to leak. This is a common disease in people of any age, especially in the autumn-winter period. Bronchitis often accompanies ARVI or the flu, or occurs later. In some cases, the disease develops independently.
Forms of bronchitis
Bronchitis has two forms, depending on what causes the inflammatory process in the bronchi. If a blockage occurs in them due to swelling of the mucous membrane, then the disease becomes “obstructive”. Continue reading
Symptoms of pharyngitis do not differ in age, therefore, the manifestations are the same for adults and children. Pharyngitis is an inflammation of the mucous membrane of the throat.

Chronic tonsillitis (CT) is common after a recent sore throat. It can also provoke any other infectious disease in which inflammation of the throat mucosa has been observed. Often people confuse chronic tonsillitis with tonsillitis. In fact, angina is the popular name for acute tonsillitis, which usually precedes the chronic form. In chronic tonsillitis, the lymphoid tissue of the tonsils of the pharynx is affected. In rare cases, the focus of infection can be localized on the tonsils, or lingual. An acute inflammatory process is observed, which is repeated throughout the year. Most often, children are affected by an illness, ranging from 15 to 63% of cases, depending on the time of year. Treatment should be started immediately, because other diseases develop against the background of the ailment. Among them are diseases of the skin, eyes, kidneys, and thyroid gland.
