What is Diphtheria?
Diphtheria is an acute bacterial disease that
usually affects the tonsils, throat, nose and/or skin. It is passed from one
person to the other by droplet transmission.
This is most often by breathing in diphtheria bacteria after an infected person
has coughed, sneezed or even laughed. Diphtheria can also be spread by handling
used tissues or by drinking from a glass used by an infected person.
Diphtheria can look like a severe sore throat. Other symptoms are a
low-grade fever and enlarged lymph nodes (swollen glands) located in the
neck. Another presentation of diphtheria can be skin lesions that may be
painful, red and swollen.
