Strep is a type of bacterial infection (the same one that causes Strep Throat).If the strep bacterial make its way into the Bronchial tubes--then this will become Bronchitis caused by Strep. It is however, not uncommon to experience Bronchitis secondary to a cold and it is caused by a virus. Bronchitis is swelling/inflammation of tree like structure that go into the lung. When these become swollen, large amounts of mucus is formed. Thus you develop wheezing and a deep cough.

Strep throat is an infection caused by bacteria. It is called "strep" because the bacteria that causes the infection is called streptococcus.

Bronchitis is mostly a persistent itchy cough. A person might also feel a bit tired.

A sinus infection causes a headache, post-nasal drip, and fatigue. It sometimes affects the ears and causes a stuffy nose. It seldom causes a cough.

Strep is an infectious bacterial disease that can be very
painful and it can cause irritation in the throat. Here are some of its signs: Nausea
and abdominal pain. Bronchitis happens when the lining of the bronchioles, or
tubes in the lungs, are inflamed. Fatigue and a runny nose are a few of its symptoms.
