There are various types of anthrax infections. Depending on the type, the symptoms that a person will experience will vary because each type impacts the body differently. One type is the cutaneous anthrax. This type enters the body through a sore on their skin, as well as a cute.

Another type of anthrax infection is the gastrointestinal anthrax. A person will obtain this type when they eat contaminated meat, that is not cooked correctly. Someone with this type will experience symptoms like pain in the abdomen, not wanting to eat, or fever. There is also inhalation anthrax, which is when an animal inhales spores of anthrax.

There are different types of anthrax disease, and that is why there are cases of variation in the various symptoms of the disease. There are about four known types of anthrax disease; they are; cutaneous anthrax, Gastrointestinal anthrax, inhalation anthrax, and Injection anthrax. Cutaneous anthrax is gotten mostly by people when the disease enters through a sore on their skin, and it can also enter if you have a cut on the skin.

Gastrointestinal anthrax is also a type of anthrax disease that can be gotten when you eat the meat of an infected animal that was not properly cooked. Symptoms like nausea, loss of appetite, fever, abdominal pain, are usually experienced with this type of anthrax disease. Another type of anthrax disease is inhalation anthrax and can be gotten when an animal inhales anthrax spores. Injection anthrax is a new way of getting anthrax *infection.
