Viruses causing LRIs such as tracheobronchitis, bronchiolitis, and pneumonia are influenza virus, RSV, parainfluenza virus, and adenovirus. Young children, the elderly, and patients with compromised cardiac, pulmonary, or immune systems are at greatest risk for serious disease. In children, 15% to 25% of pneumonias are caused by RSV, 15% by parainfluenza virus, and 7% to 9% by adenovirus.  Vaccine blocks, but you still will display a infection.  Usually no medicine.  Interferon will help body help itself.

Antibiotics are not effective against viruses, and the Centers for Disease Control and other health organizations now recommend against using antibiotics unless there is clear evidence of a bacterial infection.  Humans make proteins called ANTIBODIES to respond to ALL FOREiGN SUBSTANCES MHC=major histocompatibility complex Hello my name is "Jeff Bradley"
Most viral infections tend to resolve on their own without treatment so any treatment generally is aimed at providing relief from symptoms like pain, fever and cough.
