A pathogen is a substance or an agent which is responsible of creating diseases in a body. The main cause of disease is a pathogen. They are basically viruses causing harm to the body. Pathogens include bacteria, fungi, yeasts and other types of viruses. These substances get in touch with our organs and the virus spreads and the problem increases. These types of viruses are a serious threat and have to be treated immediately. Visit your nearby doctor for a quick diagnosis and treatment. Viruses which cause cold and cough can be treated easily but they too need immediate medical attention. These viruses are continuously multiplying and spreading all over the body.
