Manchester pharmacy can relieve your chest infection.

At Manchester pharmacy we will provide medication for your chest infection. Chest infections are common, especially after a cold or flu during autumn and winter.

You may also experience more general symptoms of an infection, such as a headache, fatigue, sweating or loss of appetite. A chest infection is an infection of the lungs or airways. The main types of chest infections are bronchitis and pneumonia. Most bronchitis cases are caused by viruses, On the other hand most pneumonia cases are due to bacteria. These infections usually spread when someone coughs or sneezes. This launches very small amounts of fluid containing the virus or bacteria into the air, this where they are breathed in by others.

Many chest infections aren’t serious and get better within a few days or weeks. You wont usually see your GP, unless your symptoms suggest you have a more serious infection. You can improve your symptoms while at home by getting plenty of rest, drinking lots of fluids, you can also take paracetamol or ibuprofen.
