Difference between Viral Infections and Bacterial Infections
How do infections spread with Viruses and Bacteria
• Viruses and bacteria are spread same ways: An employee suffering from cold may spread the infection both by coughing and sneezing on the environment by leaving microbes on the things he / she touches.
• Another very important route of infection is a discharge from a digestive system (human or animal) to food.
How does the doctor treats bacterial infections?
Bacterial infections are usually treated with a specific antibiotic, Ie, a “poison”, which just hits the bacterium, which has caused your disease. In order to be sure you get the right treatment, your doctor will often choose to take a sample either directly detecting bacteria, or possibly after a few days of culture at a particular substrate shows the result.
How does the doctor viral infections?
Unlike bacteria, viruses have no metabolism and are therefore not able to reproduce before they are integrated into our cells. The treatment of viral infections is usually left to the patient’s own immune system.
It can be difficult to accept when the doctor says that you have a viral infection, and that the only cure is to let nature take its course. When you are sick you should just love to have a treatment. The treatment of viral infections, which usually is drinking ample water, stay home (so you do not infect others) and possibly take some painkillers and fever-reducing medicine.
Fortunately, we have vaccines against many viral diseases which give your body some attachments so that the virus can be beaten down faster and more efficiently.
