Why are bacterial infections easier to treat than viral infections?
That is true but viral infections stay dormant in the body until the nucleic acids can enter a cell then spreading itself throughout the body. Viral infections can not be cured unlike bacterial infections. Bacterial infections enter the body by air... thus entering the bloodstream going to any part of the body. The bacteria may even have a specific place in the blood it may want to go. Antibiotics were made to cure bacterial infections to stop replicating, growing or to even die. Therefor Viral infections can not be cured making the hard to treat then bacterial infections

Who can develop nosocomial infections?
Anyone exposed to bacteria or other pathogens in health care locations can become infected. What makes an infection nosocomial is that it was "caught" at a health care facility. They are also usually hard infections to treat, such as antibiotic resistant bacterial infections, like MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staph Aureus) infections.

Why are protozoan infections more difficult to treat than non drug resist bacterial infections?
Asked in Viruses (biological)
What is one property of the virus that makes it difficult to cure viral infections?
Asked in Penicillin
Can you use penicillin for herpes infection?
No, penicillin is an 'antibiotic', i.e. active against bacterial caused infections. Herpes is a viral infection and thus penicillin does not touch it. Viral infections are hard to treat (it is only the body's own defenses that really work), however there are some 'antiviral' medicines that can help.
Asked in Cold and Flu, Doctors, Antibiotics
Why would physicians prescribe antibiotics to patients who have colds and flu caused by viruses?
Either under pressure from the uninformed patient who thinks that is what they need or because the doctor wants to prevent or treat a secondary bacterial infection that often occurs with virus infections. Bacterial pneumonia can superimpose on lungs already in trouble from a viral infection, for example. Over-prescribing of antibiotics is one of the factors that caused us to have serious antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections that are very hard to cure. The lesson from this is: Don't ask the doctor for antibiotics, let her decide when they are needed.
What are the treatments of nosocomial infection?
"Nosocomial infection" just refers to infections acquired at a health care location or facility. The treatment would be the same for "community-acquired" infections and nosocomial infections and determined by the organisms involved and the individual infected (which could be any type of infection: bacterial, viral, fungal, parasitic, etc.). Sometimes the specific organisms involved in bacterial nosocomial infections are very hard to treat because they may be "antibiotic resistant." They can become resistant from circulating in areas where common antibiotics are in frequent use exposing the bacteria to brief encounters with the antibiotic, making the bacteria stronger against it and resistant to the treatment.

What is the difference between bacterial and viral infections?
Viral : Most viral infections stay only up to 10 days. Bacterial : Bacterial infections stay more than two weeks. Viral : Viral infection causes runny nose, pain in body, weakness, recurrent fever. Bacterial : Bacterial infections cause thick and coloured nose, high fever, chronic cough. Viral : Most viral infections can be cured without antibiotics and only with some light medicines of pain and fever as prescribed by the doctor. Bacterial : Bacterial infections always require antibiotics depending on the condition of the patient's resistance (Immunity) against antibiotics. Viral : Viral infections are easy to pass by the patient. Mostly it do not disturbed the normal routine life. Bacterial : Bacterial infections are hard to suffer. Patient is sometimes not able to drink even a glass of water. NOTE: All the information given above was collected from different books and websites. There may be a chance of mistake. Please refer a doctor first before taking any action. Life is not a simulator. Do not take risk. Experiments can be done on animals. You are a human Being. James M. Steckelberg, M.D. As you might think, bacterial infections are caused by bacteria and viral infections are caused by viruses. Infections caused by bacteria include strep throat, tuberculosis and urinary tract infections. Diseases that result from viruses include chickenpox, AIDS and the common cold. Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that thrive in many different types of environments. Some varieties live in extremes of cold or heat, while others make their home in people's intestines, where they help digest food. Most bacteria cause no harm to people. Viruses are even smaller than bacteria and require living hosts - such as people, plants or animals - to multiply. Otherwise, they can't survive. When a virus enters your body, it invades some of your cells and takes over the cell machinery, redirecting it to produce the virus. Perhaps the most important distinction between bacteria and viruses is that antibiotic drugs usually kill bacteria, but they aren't effective against viruses. In some cases, it may be difficult to determine whether a bacterium or a virus is causing your symptoms. Many ailments - such as pneumonia, meningitis and diarrhea - can be caused by either type of microbe. Inappropriate use of antibiotics has helped create strains of bacterial disease that are resistant to treatment with different types of antibiotic medications. Bacterial infections are caused by bacteria and Viral infections are caused by Viruses. Unlike bacteria, Viruses need a host to survive, so viruses latch on to a body's cell, and inject their genetic code inside of it. Then that body cell send out more virus-infected cells. Which leads on to producing more and more virus cells. Bacteria on the other hand are their own cell, and do not need a host. They occur by a bacteria entering the body, and not getting defeated by the immune system's Killer T cells, which destroy bacteria. Your immune system has cells called "B cells," Some of those B cells make antibodies when they come in contact with a virus, bacterial infections occur when a B cell comes in contact with a bacteria it doesn't recognize, and by the time your B cells start producing antibodies for the bacteria, you're already sick.
