He shouldn’t be outside!  If he’s that sick try to talk him into staying home and resting.  Sleeping and pushing fluids are really the best natural things you can do to help your body get better.

Also.. given that he is really sick and has a consistent history of Bronchitis is there anyway the doctor can just call in an antibiotic for him so he doesn’t have to wait.  I was really sick recently and all I had to do was call my doc and tell her I was on day three of 102 degree temp and she called the pharmacy for me right away.

Ok I k now this sounds really old school, but homemade chicken soup.

I always make it for my fiance when he gets sick, and honestly it works.

I always add alot of ginger, garlic, onions, carrots, celery, spices, potatoes, and boil the bones in the broth, before making the soup. I don’t use noodles, because there aren’t any healing properties, so that’s what the potatoes are for.

@soyjoy222: My Fi is an electrician, and he NEVER goes to the doctor.  For something like this, I would encourage him to take a day or two off if possible and do Nyquil, get tons of sleep, and get over it. 

For me, I always do Dayquil/Nyquil, Riccola drops, and lots and lots of sleep.

I swear by a Neti Pot (although I use the squeeze bottle), Airborne and zinc lozenges. My Darling Husband used to get bronchitis all the time before he met me, but using a neti pot (or sailine wash) several times a day when he’s sick, has stopped it from getting into his lungs.

Get t zinc cough drops. They make your mouth feel funny, but something about the zinc slowly disolving binds with the cold virus and stops it from replicating.

Barring the zinc cough drops (I can’t stomach them, but I’ve heard they work wonders), I’ve found that Halls Defense are pretty good–and more palatable!

My mother used to make mustard seed compresses for my chest when I was a kid and got sick. For some reason, it really helps with chest congestion.
