Respiratory Tract Infections

Respiratory infections are one of the most common reasons for doctor visits, which can happen at any time, but are most common in the fall and winter. The vast majorities of respiratory infections are caused by viruses and are self-limited. Antibiotics are rarely needed to treat respiratory infections and generally should be avoided, unless the doctor suspects a bacterial infection.
