   I have always had hay fever.  I am 57.  After about
   40 and occasional bouts of bronchitis,  i have developed
   dust, or cat induced asthma.   I have used
   bronchial inhalers lightly over 10 yrs.  There
   has not been obvious adverse problems from
   this.  I have not overused them.   Last
   couple months cant seem to kick a combination
   of chronic asthma, plus some mucus coming
   out of lungs, so i think i have developed chronic
   allergic bronchitis. 
   Sometimes i feel pretty good and dont remember 
   i have it.  Other times i get started with a bout
   of sneezing, then sinus mucous, then bronchial
   tubes tighten,  then get some mucous coming
   from lungs,  clear or slightly colored, but doesnt
   seem to go away, and can even become painful
   for lake of ability to exhale, due to mucous.
   I have been fighting this with antihistamines
   chlorotabs, which help,  and local inhaler
   (not prescribed).   
   It seemed to get somewhat worse a couple
   weeks ago, when i was soldering something
   and caught some breathes of a melting plastic.
   I dont believe i have pneumonia, and i wont
   take anti-biotics, even narrow spectrum,
   because i believe it hurts other body organs,
   colon, balance, pancreas liver etc.
   Anything else i can do.?  thanks in advance.

Hi Tru - I know that you don't want to take anitbiotics and it seems that you may have bronchitis like you said. My hubby has chronic bronchitis as well and refuses to take antibiotics too. Just wondering, have you ever tried Bee Propolis? As long as you're not allergic to bees, bee propolis has natural anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties - it might be able to help with the bronchitis. You really should go see a doc because I know that antibiotics upsets all sorts of things in our bodies but you could be damaging your lungs with chronic infections.
