Respiratory Tract Infections
It can often be used to describe pneumonia, but lower respiratory tract infections can include acute bronchitis and lung abscess too. Signs to look out for include dry coughing, fatigue and shortness of breath as well as fever and sore limbs. The flu can also affect both the upper and lower respiratory tracts and antibiotics are usually the first line in treating it. Your doctor will speak to you about the best method of treatment during the consultation.
