Infectious Diesase Specialist

An infectious disease specialist is one who deals with infectious diseases. Infectious diseases are not be confused with the initial infections, however. Infectious disease specialists are doctors of internal medicine who study and work with full blown diseases that are spread through infection resulting in contact with bacteria or parasites or fungus. They are concerned with how these affect the human body and what can be done to fight them once a disease is contracted. A few examples of such diseases are; arthritis, tuberculosis, dengue fever, mumps and HIV.

A fever is one of the most common indicators or an infection. If you or your child have a fever, it is a good idea to consult your primary care doctor. Even if it turns out to be nothing more than your body reacting to the common cold, there is a chance that it could a be an indicator of something more serious. If your doctor suspects something more serious, he will commonly refer you to an infectious disease specialist.

The study of infectious diseases has been around for centuries. Even if a particular infectious disease is thought to be wiped out, bacteria and virus will adapt to new environments to guarantee their own survival. For this reason, the practice of an infectious disease specialist is constantly growing to meet the needs of the human immune system. However, with new technological advances and expanding knowledge, staying ahead of the curve is becoming more of a reality.

Infectious disease specialist will often work with patients directly, as well as the primary care doctor, scientists and lab assistants to diagnose an infectious disease. Once a diagnosis is made, then it is an infectious disease specialist's job to decide what the steps are, in order to manage the disease. The infectious disease specialist will run a series of laboratory tests and/or X-rays, depending on whether there are other symptoms present. When the results of these tests are in, then he can identify the problem and begin to treat the infection. An example of such treatment would be antibiotics, such as penicillin.
