Bacterial Infections

Exploring Bacterial Infections

When dangerous bacteria get into the body and make you sick, this is called a bacterial infection. They can hurt many parts of the body, like the skin, lungs, and urinary system. Some symptoms are mild, like coughing and fever, and some are very bad, like sepsis. Antibiotics are often given by a doctor or nurse as part of treatment. To protect public health and lower the chance of bacterial diseases, it is important to take preventative steps like getting vaccinated, practicing good cleanliness, and following food safety rules.
