Your first impression is that a runny nose is a part of the disease or a disease itself. That is totally a misconception. When you get acute bronchitis, your body will react by producing more mucus. This should trap the virus before it can reach your lungs and other parts of your anatomy. Some of the mucus comes out through your nose. A runny nose is a defensive consequence of the body against external threats.
There are various treatments for this symptom. Try some simple home remedies. Drink more liquids or place hot compresses on your face while sitting. You can cough the mucus out or just blow it out through your nose. Your doctor can also recommend medications.
