Virus or Bacteria? What's got you sick? - CDC Infographic

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what’s making you sick: a virus or a bacteria?

The overuse of antibiotics leads to dangerous, antibiotic resistant bacteria, commonly referred to as super bugs.

The CDC has released an infographic to help you determine whether you’ve come down with a virus or a bacterial infection, so that you and your doctor can work together to treat your illness effectively and safely.
