Infectious diseases are conditions caused by microorganisms or "germs", including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Many microorganisms live in and on our bodies. They are normally harmless or even helpful for us, but under certain circumstances can cause disease.
Infectious diseases can be passed from person to person. Some are transmitted by bites from insects or animals, while others can come from eating or drinking contaminated food or water. Some infectious diseases develop after exposure to microorganisms in the environment.
An Infectious Diseases specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of infections. You may need to see an Infectious Diseases specialist if you have a severe or difficult to treat infection, require prolonged antibiotic therapy, or if you have a suspected infection that has not been diagnosed. Infectious Diseases specialists can also manage intravenous (IV) antibiotic administration in the outpatient setting to avoid hospital admission. In addition, Infectious Diseases specialists offer counseling, vaccinations, and medications for prevention of infections.
