Hi I was diagnosed today (Dec. 18) with acute bronchitis and an ear infection . The doctor did not do an x-ray but did check my white cell count(which he said was ok). He said my lungs sounded course. He put me on a z-pal and an albuterol inhaler . I am suppose to fly to Dubai, UAE on Dec. 24. Will I be safe to fly by then?

hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
bronchitis is most commonly viral infection.
it will take atleast 5 to 7 days for our body immunity to respond to infection and contain it.
your already on bronchodilator and antibiotic so no further medication is neeeded.
if it is not controlled on these medication then you might need chest x ray and medication accordingly.
