No, not that I'm aware of... a kidney infection can be cause dform several things including diet, how often you urinate and injuries. It is not possible to catch a kidney infection from someone or pass one on to someone else. No. I've had at least 5 kidney infections. It hurts terribly but no, it's not contagious. There are a few different things that cause them: 1. Wiping from back to front 2. Not drinking enough fluids 3. Having bacteria get inside you (from things such as certain kinds of foreplay, or sex. If you are sexually active, be sure to urinate after intercourse. Always.)

Both bacterial infections and viral infections can be contagious or not contagious. Some viral infections are not spread from human to human or are only rarely spread that way. TB is a contagious bacterial infection.

The infection is highly contagious in its early stages. Blindness results from recurrent untreated infections.
