What is Infectious Disease?

Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. These diseases can range from mild, self-limiting illnesses to severe, life-threatening conditions. The study of infectious diseases involves the identification, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of these diseases.

The field of infectious disease encompasses a wide range of topics, from the basic microbiology of infectious agents to the management of complex infections. It involves the use of laboratory techniques and diagnostic tools to identify and isolate infectious agents, as well as the use of antibiotics, antivirals, and other therapies to treat infections. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms associated with infectious diseases, it may be necessary to consult an infectious disease specialist. These symptoms can include:

  • fever
  • cough
  • sore throat
  • fatigue
  • body aches
  • nausea or vomiting
  • diarrhoea
  • rash
  • swollen lymph nodes
  • difficulty breathing
