    Bacteria, fungi and viruses are all disease causing germs. Very often, symptoms of diseases caused by these organisms csn overlap making it difficult to differentiate. By and large, most rashes are viral in origin but other skin lesions like eczema and ringworm tend to be fungal. Pus containing lesions are either bacterial ab initio or a suoer imposed bacterial infection. Pls leave drug prescription to those trained in diagnosis of these conditions
