Spring is here and often we dismiss coughing and congestion... as allergies. But that may not be the case.

In the central part of Colorado Springs, Dr. Tom Bartlett with Mountain View Medical Group says he's seeing a lot of viral bronchitis lately.

Here's what the symptoms look like: You'll notice a fever, a non-productive cough and nasal-sinus congestion.

So what do you do? The good news is you can do a lot with Tylenol or ibuprofen and some cough medicine. But if you start wheezing, it's time to see the doctor for steroids.
