Garden Area: Infectious Disease
Infectious diseases are caused by organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Treatment for infectious disease varies. Some like the common cold, are mild and can be treated with rest and home remedies, while others are life-threatening and require hospitalization. Many infectious diseases, such as measles and chickenpox, can be prevented by vaccines.
