Bacterial Pneumonia can quickly spread from person to person, while fungal pneumocystis can transmit from the environment. However, it is less contagious from bacterial pneumocystis because it is not spread from person to person.
Which Pneumonia Becomes Contagious?

Even healthy persons feel tired till the month of attacking in Pneumonia. The exact duration of illness depends on the capability of microorganism, causing the infection—some pneumonia attacks from mycoplasm. Person falls on Pneumonia for several weeks.
How Pneumonia is caused?
There is a specific bacterium Streptococcus Pneumonia that attacks the airspaces of lungs. Moreover, it caused inflammation in air sacs which are known as alveoli. This inflammation makes a reason for pus and mucus, which lead to difficulty in breathing. Pneumonia may be caused because of exposure of bacteria, virus, and sometimes fungal infection attacks the lungs. But most common pneumocystis is caused because of bacteria known as Streptococcus Pneumonia

- A person feels difficulty in breathing.
- They suffer from chest pain which makes them uncomfortable.
Walking Pneumonia is a type of atypical pneumonia. A person suffers from a mild cold. It is caused by attacks of mycoplasm bacteria on the respiratory tract, which affect the lungs. Furthermore, a person feels difficult to breathe in walking Pneumonia. It is contagious as well as spread from person to person. It more attacks young children and students children as well as older persons. And it attacks more who suffers from
- A person who has a weak immune system

- Sore throat
- Fatigue or weakness
- Chest pain
- Mild cold
- The cough becomes dry or some time with mucus
These symptoms come gradually in walking Pneumonia. When bacteria attack ultimately on the lungs, symptoms are shown. At the last stage, symptoms become worsen.
Comparison of Bronchitis and Pneumonia:
Bronchitis and Pneumonia are both respiratory tract disease. Here you found a comparison between both diseases. So Let’s Start with Bronchitis!
What is Bronchitis?
Bronchitis is inflammation on bronchial tubes of the respiratory tract. It caused by bacterial, viral and fungal exposure from the environment. However, cold and flu also caused Bronchitis. It is associated with cough, which brings up mucus and found chest tightness like the pain of a diseased person
Bronchitis is also taking in two types:
- Acute Bronchitis
- Chronic Bronchitis
Acute Bronchitis which is easily cured in days or week. It is caused by eating or drinking some wrong. And it is also affected when flu or cold is worsening
Chronic Bronchitis which is not accessible to cured. Furthermore, it has taken the time of months to cure. It is caused by an environmental factor such as dust, pollen, pollutant etc. which become allergic to the respiratory tract.
What is Pneumonia?
As we discussed above, it is a type of infection which attacks one or both lungs. Bacteria, virus and sometimes fungal attacks the air sacs and cause it. There are alveoli organ located near the lungs help in air exhalation. In Pneumonia the alveoli filled with pus, mucus. As a result, the person feels difficult to breathe. There are some particular bacteria attacks the respiratory sacs and person sneeze, cough and such conditions are shown when a person falls on Pneumonia.
Overall the comparison between Bronchitis and Pneumonia conclude
“Both affect the respiratory tract, airways which lead to coughing and first difficulty in breathing. Bronchitis affects the airways, while Pneumonia affects the lungs.’’
What is Double Pneumonia?
It is also an infection that affects your both lungs; hence it is termed as Double Pneumonia. It causes inflammation on air sacs of lungs and filled with pus and mucus. Moreover, a person feels too much difficulty in breathing because their both lungs got infected. It also caused by bacteria and virus. Nevertheless, it is severe than simple Pneumonia. It is characterized by segments infected. If ore segments are infected, it is more severe and leads to death.
Symptoms of Double Pneumonia:
The symptoms of double Pneumonia are similar to simple pneumocystis. It does not mean that both lungs are infected, so it makes symptoms more severe.
Symptoms vary of age, health, and immunity system.
What is Multifocal Pneumonia?
It is also a type of Pneumonia, and it is the most severe condition of Pneumonia.
In Multifocal Pneumonia, not only any part of the lung is infected while multiple segments got infected. More tissues of lungs are infected in multifocal Pneumonia, and it is most severe. This condition when a person holds on a ventilator which helps a person in breathing.pneumocystis. In Multifocal Pneumonia, not only any part of the lung is infected while multiple segments got infected. More tissues of lungs are infected in multifocal Pneumonia, and it is most severe. This condition when a person holds on a ventilator which helps a person in breathing.
Causes of Multifocal Pneumonia:
There are many disorders which lead to multifocal Pneumonia. While pneumocystis is occasionally multifocal. Mycoplasm Pneumonia leads multifocal sometimes.
Symptoms of Pneumonia:
The symptoms of multifocal Pneumonia are similar to cold and flu. However, gradually its symptoms appeared include.
- Chest pain
- Fever lead to sweating
- Shaking chills
- Shortness of breath
Antibiotics for Pneumonia:
There are many antibiotics which help in the cure of pneumocystis. Some antibiotics are discussed here.
- Macrolide drugs, Macrolide drugs should take by treatment for children and adult
- Fluoroquinolones, these are not preferred in the treatment of children.
- Tetracyclines, These are should take by the treatment for adults and other children
Bacterial pneumocystis is easily cured of antibiotics while if you suffer from viral Pneumonia, It is only cured by rest, taking fluids and take healthy food.
At last, I conclude that pneumocystis is not a simple disease that will be cured of home. So if you have to appear any symptoms, you need to see your doctor. Because if it is not cured with time if affected the entire lung which causes your death. So please care for yourself and remain happy.
