Exposure/germ factor: Infections occur when a germ is introduced to a location where conditions are supportive of germ growth.The germ begins to reproduce using local nutrient sources & invades the area.Some germs are benign hitch hikers & simply hang around while others are invasive & elaborate toxic chemicals that are destructive to tissue.
