It does tend to vary from person to person, but usually about 2 days for my little one. Did the doctor give your son a prescription for liquid albuterol? It's the same thing that's in rescue inhalers, and it opens up the airways. My daughter and I have both taken it with bronchitis, and it gets rid of the burning, itchy feeling and helps you breathe until the antibiotics kick in and reduce the swelling. If the doctor didn't write you a prescription for it, I'd call and ask for one. Hugs chica!
