Pneumonia is the swelling of the tissue in one or both lungs, usually brought on by a bacterial infection, but can be as a complication of viral infections which make the body weak and more susceptible to a secondary infection. The tiny air sacs (alveoli) become inflamed and fill up with fluid making it difficult to breath. Due to the fluid build up the symptoms are a cough, but you may also have a rapid heartbeat and fever, sweats and loss of appetite as your body fights the infection. You can also experience chest pain. Croup is a a condition that is commonly found in children.
pertussis are very common to the symptoms of a cold and the flu like sneezing, sore throat, watery eyes, runny nose, mild fever, and cough, so people can get confused thinking it is just a cold until the symptoms become more intense (Konkel.)

In infants can occur apnea, pause in the rhythm of his breath.
The skin around the sores becomes dry and flakey and sometimes even becomes ulcerated like the skin was eaten away (Carson-Dewitt). Along with the signs, the symptom of itchiness almost always appears. The itchiness contributes to the spreading because the patient will feel the urge to scratch the sore, and when the bacteria get under the nails it spreads to whatever else the patient touches. A patient can also develop a fever, pain, and swelling if the infection spreads and worsens ( Scholten). If the Impetigo is left untreated it has the potential to worsen and develop into: ecthyma, black scabs around ulcers; glomerulonephritis, a kidney disease; osteomyelitis, a bone infection;sepsis, a systemic infection; scarlet fever; streptococcal disease or pneumonia (Carson De-Witt, Scholten).

The scarlet fever is an infection that can develop inside people who have strep throat. The infection is caused by group A streptococcus bacteria, which are the same bacteria that cause strep throat. These bacteria produce a toxin, or poison, that causes a bright red rash on the body. The scarlet-colored rash is what gives scarlet fever its name. Aside from the rash, people with scarlet fever usually have a high fever and sore throat.

Include information about the disease and its symptoms Pertussis, otherwise known as the whooping cough or the 100-day cough, is a highly contagious bacterial disease in which the patient suffers from severe coughing fits, after which a high pitched “whoop” sound or gasp may occur as a patient breathes. These coughing fits can become so extreme that they can cause the patient to vomit, break ribs, and experience extreme fatigue from the effort of coughing. People suffering from Pertussis may also lose weight and lose control of their bladder. Pertussis in babies under the age of one is extremely dangerous and can be deadly, the baby has little to no cough but instead will have apnea, in which the baby goes through periods of time where they
Pyelonephritis can be defined as an acute sudden, and severe bacterial infection (an infection caused by the abundant growth of bacteria) of the kidney’s (organs that play a role in regulating fluid balance, and also filter out waste in the blood through the urine). Although this is an acute (experiences at a severe or dangerous degree) disease (a disorder of a structure or function in the human body) it can be very harmful to the body. Just the acute form of pyelonephritis can start in the lower urinary tract (where the urine is produced and discharged out of the body), such as in the bladder (where urine is collected to be excreted) and end up traveling to the kidney’s, causing the kidneys to swell (to become inflamed) and can actually cause renal scarring (thick, irregular scars that are a characteristic of pyelonephritis) if not treated properly.
A common type of reactive arthritis is Reiter syndrome, which causes redness, swelling and pain in the knees, ankles, and feet, and inflammation of the eyes and urinary tract. It is not contagious, but the bacteria that trigger it can be easily passed from one person to another. Reiter syndrome cannot be cured, but it is controllable with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, and antibiotics. With treatment, symptoms usually subside in two to six months, but long-term issues are common. Reiter syndrome is triggered by fairly common bacterial infections including salmonella,
