Infectious disease doctors in Portsmouth
Infectious diseases are caused by germs—tiny living organisms found in the air, soil and water. While many germs are harmless, others can cause life-threatening illnesses. No matter the severity, our specialists at Portsmouth Regional Hospital are committed to treating all types of infectious disease.
To schedule an appointment or to learn more about our services, call (888) 421-1080.
Under certain circumstances, people can become infected by touching, eating, drinking or breathing something that contains germs. Germs are also spread through insect and animal bites, kissing and sexual contact. Vaccines, proper handwashing and medications can help prevent infectious diseases.
Infectious diseases vary widely in their causes, symptoms and treatments. Some infections may be cured through rest and simple home care, while others may require hospitalization and intravenous antibiotics.
