Pneumonia is an infection in the lungs that causes cough with pus and fever. It is normally caused by bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is one of the illnesses that can go from mild to life-threatening. It is most serious for babies and children, people older than age 65 and people with health problems.

The symptoms vary from mild to severe, depending on what caused the infection and age and they are similiter to those of the flu, but they last longer. These symptoms include: chest pain when breathing or coughing, cough, fatigue, fever, chills, vomiting and shortness of breath.


Bronchiolitis is one of the most common lung diseases in children and babies during winter. It is transmitted through air. Normally, it is caused by a virus that swells the small airways up. It starts out with symptoms similar to those of a common cold, but it is normal to cough, hear a whistling noise when the child breathes out or have some difficulties breathing.

These symptoms last several days, weeks or even a month. For the first few days, it is normal to have a stuffy nose and, in some cases, slight fever. Some children will also have an ear infection.


Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils, a tissue at the back of the throat. Most cases of tonsillitis are caused by a virus, although it can also be caused by a bacterium.
This inflammation most commonly affects children between preschool ages and mid-teenage years. Surgery to remove tonsils is usually performed only when it occurs frequently.

The most common symptoms of tonsillitis vary from swollen tonsils and sore throat to difficulty when swallowing and fever, although it is also normal to have a scratchy voice, stomach-ache, stiff neck and headache.


Bronchitis is a respiratory infection that can be acute or chronic. Acute bronchitis is caused by viruses, the same that cause colds or flu, while chronic bronchitis, a more serious condition, is due to smoking. Symptoms may include: cough, mucus, fatigue, shortness of breath, fever, chills and chest discomfort.

Furthermore, acute bronchitis shares some symptoms with cold such as body aches and headaches. These symptoms usually improve in about a week, but it is possible to have a remaining cough for several weeks. Chronic bronchitis lasts some months and can come back during the following two years
