What is Infection?

Infection results from harmful pathogens, such as viruses, bacteria, and, parasites, infiltrating the body from external sources. These pathogens can be transmitted through human contact, insects, or ingestion of contaminated substances. In contrast, noninfectious diseases are not caused by external organisms but rather by factors like genetics.

Examples of infectious diseases encompass well-known conditions like the flu, HIV, and salmonella. If you suspect or have been diagnosed with an infectious disease, it is imperative to seek professional care and guidance from Schneck, where our dedicated team is ready to provide the expertise and support required for effective management and treatment.
