What is bacteria & bacterial infection?

Bacteria are extremely small, microscopic organisms that live on or inside most plants and animals. These organisms can live and thrive under almost any condition, environment, or location. A majority of bacteria are harmless to people –in fact, they may even provide some benefits, like helping in digestion, creating antibodies, and fighting certain illnesses. But some strains of bacteria are very harmful. They can make people sick, create many healthcare problems, and even cause death among the infected people.

Infectious bacteria can penetrate inside your body and make you ill. Pneumonia, meningitis, food poisoning, gonorrhoea, and syphilis are but some of the most well-known forms of bacterial infections. However, as horrible as it may sound, it’s not all bad news.

In this day and age, it is very easy to prevent infectious bacteria from entering your body and making you ill. There are many preventative measures and lifestyle changes you can undertake to make things better for you and your loved ones.

What are the symptoms of bacterial infections?

Usually, the signs and symptoms of a bacterial infection vary with its type and location. These infections range all the way from mild to severe. The most common signs of bacterial infections are;

  • Fever
  • Feelings of fatigue or getting tired
  • Swollen lymph nodes, especially in the armpits, groin or the neck
  • Mild to severe headache
  • Nausea

What causes bacterial infections?

Bacterial infections typically occur when infectious bacteria enter the body, rapidly multiply, and cause an adverse reaction in the body. Bacteria generally enter the body through an opening in the skin, like a cut or a wound, or through natural openings, like airways or genitals.

You can become exposed to infectious bacteria from other people, your surroundings, or by eating or drinking infected food or water. Anyone can contract a bacterial infection and become sick; however, people with a weak immune system are especially vulnerable to sickness.

Some special conditions or medications may also suppress your immune system function, increasing your vulnerability. If you become a victim of a bacterial infection without a clear or known cause, it is better to book an appointment with your GP.

What are the antibacterial options you have?

Prevention is always better than cure. Therefore, taking preemptive steps to stop the spread of infection may help you avoid a lot of potential trouble in the future. Make appropriate changes in your lifestyle and take products specifically designed to keep you fit and healthy.

The best method of preventing bacterial infections is to maintain a high standard of good hygiene. This can be achieved through a series of lifestyle changes and the use of specialised products.

  • Wash your hands with antibacterial soap
  • Use a mouthwash
  • Always keep antibacterial hand or body wipes close by
  • Cover your mouth when coughing
  • Carefully clean and dress cuts or wounds on your body
  • Do not pick at healing wounds
  • Use clean or sterilised utensils when eating
  • Avoid contact with tools or things in public use

What is the difference between bacterial and viral infections?

Bacterial infections

Bacterial infections are usually caused by bacteria, which are extremely small, single-celled microorganisms. They are extremely diverse in shape, size, and structural features. Bacteria are highly resilient –they can live in almost any conceivable environment, inside or outside the human body. However, only a small number of bacteria are actually harmful and cause infections in humans. These infectious bacteria are called pathogenic bacteria.

Viral infections

Viral infections are caused by viruses that are another type of microorganisms; however, they are typically even smaller in size than bacteria. Just like bacteria, viruses also come in many shapes, sizes, and features. Viruses are generally parasitic in nature –they feed on healthy living cells or tissue to survive and thrive. Parasitic viruses invade your cells and use them to grow and multiply.

What to do if I have a bacterial infection?

It is very likely that you will experience at least a few bacterial infections throughout your life. However, it is extremely unlikely never to encounter infectious bacteria when living a normal life unless you live in a sealed, septic environment. Your doctor can help diagnose the specific infections based on symptoms and effects. In some cases, your body can easily identify the foreign invader and fight to neutralise the threat. However, you may need antibiotics to treat your condition correctly in other cases.

If you think you have an infection, please talk to your GP or Click Pharmacy health expert to determine the best course of action.
