Yes you can, bronchitis is a chronic condition whereas a cold is more acute. They affect a person in different ways but a cold will often lead to an exacerbation of bronchitis as the body will be producing even more mucus, which will lead to further narrowing of the bronchi. This will mean even more effort is required to get air into the alveoli in the lungs.
