Pulmonary and Chest Infections

A chest infection - affects lungs, either in the larger airways (bronchitis) or in the smaller air sacs (pneumonia). There is a build-up of pus and fluid (mucus), and the airways convert swollen, making it difficult for you to breathe. Chest infections can affect people of all ages. A lung infection can be triggered by a virus, bacteria, and sometimes even a fungus. One of the most common sorts of lung infections is called pneumonia. Pneumonia, which affects the smaller air sacs of the lungs, is most often caused by contagious bacteria, but can also be caused by a virus. A person becomes ill by breathing in the bacteria or virus after a nearby infected person sneezes or coughs.
