The signs and symptoms of a viral infection can vary according to the type of virus that caused the infection.

What are the main causes?

Causes of a viral infection are:

  • Contracting infection from a sick person who has sneezing or a cough
  • Having direct contact with an ill person’s hands or used things like tissues, clothes, etc.
  • Contact with materials contaminated with faeces
  • Indirect contact with the infection through contaminated surfaces like nappies, toilet handles, toys and taps
  • Consuming contaminated water or food
  • Getting exposed to body fluids of infected people by sharing hypodermic needles or sexual intercourse
  • Getting bit by infected insects or animals
  • Smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol and taking drugs as these habits weaken the immunity

How is it diagnosed and treated?

Viral infections are diagnosed by performing an immunoglobulin blood test. The test measures the levels of specific immunoglobulins: IgG, IgM and IgA.

Most people with viral infections are asked to rest and drink plenty of fluids. The doctor may prescribe paracetamol or aspirin to give relief from symptoms. Antiviral drugs are prescribed for certain infections like influenza. Antibiotics may be prescribed for a viral infection; however, they do not provide much protection against viral diseases.
