Infectious diseases can be explained as disorders caused by organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Many of these organisms live in and on our bodies. They're normally harmless or even helpful, but some organisms under certain conditions may cause disease. General signs and symptoms common to many infectious diseases include: Fever, Loss of appetite, Fatigue, Muscle aches .Infectious diseases are sometimes called ""contagious disease"" when they are easily transmitted by contact with an ill person or their secretions (e.g., influenza). Other types of infectious/transmissible/communicable diseases with more specialized routes of infection, such as vector transmission or sexual transmission, are usually not regarded as ""contagious,"" and often do not require medical isolation The diagnosis is aided by the presenting symptoms in any individual with an infectious disease,. Some signs are specifically characteristic and indicative of a disease and are called path gnomic, yet it usually needs additional diagnostic techniques to confirm the suspicion.
