Are viral infections contagious?
My mother-in-law's doctor said no. However, I do not believe that to be the case.
Additional Details
I have viral bronchitis. I told my mother-in-law I had to stay away from her as my father-in-law has chronic bronchitis. I did not want to infect him with more bronchitis.

YES, they are. Bacterial infections are infectious on contact, virals can be airborne. Your mother in law should see another doc.

I would think viral means it's a virus, and they're contagious.

Some things - like flu, throat and chest infections are viral and contagious as they are often spread through sneezing etc, but dont know about other viral infections.

i think so, viral means it travels through air right, so you breath it in, but i think there are some exceptions

Some viruses are spread directly from person to person (contagious), such as influenza and the common cold. Other viruses, such as West Nile virus and yellow fever, are not.

Of course they are. But in her case, it was probably a virus that wouldn't be easily transmitted to others.

Yes they are contagious!

Depends on which viral infection we're taking about. Transmission routes and susceptibility are different with different viruses. If you gave me more detail I could give you a more exact answer.


canela

Of course they are. Other wise how would they get transmitted from person to person. The common cold is a virus as is the Flu and Herpes. Tell your Mom to get a new doctor.

See attached for some examples.

It depends on what type it is and on the person's individual immune system...

Yes viral illnesses's are contagious. Some examples of these are The Flu, Herpes, The common cold....I could go on and on. You're Mother in law is absolutely incorrect.


Dovie
Viruses are contagious. What kind of virus did the doctor diagnose? Maybe it WAS contagious, but no longer is. Chicken pox is like that. It's contagios for awhile, then not, but you still may have pox.
