Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms — like bacterium, viruses, fungi or parasites. Several organisms sleep in and on our bodies. They are usually harmless or perhaps useful, however underneath bound conditions, some organisms could cause illness. Some infectious diseases may be passed from person to person. Some are transmitted by bites from insects or animals are no inheritable by ingesting contaminated food or water or being exposed to organisms within the atmosphere.

A red, flat rash which usually starts on the face and then spreads to the rest of the body typically begins three to five days after the start of symptoms. Complications occur in about 30% of cases and may include diarrhea, blindness, inflammation of the brain, and pneumonia, among others.
