What is a lung infection (vs pneumonia) and what might cause it?

Lung infection and pneumonia are the same. Pneumonia is lung inflammation caused by viral infections(including flu) and bacterial infections. Factors that favor this disease are: bad environmental conditions, smoking cigarettes and low immune system. Take Care. Dr. Behar.
wat is pneumonia ?
hi dear,welcome to healthcare magic...
it is an inflammatory condition of the lung—affecting primarily the microscopic air sacs known as alveoli. It is usually caused by infection with viruses or bacteria and less commonly other microorganisms, certain drugs and other conditions such as autoimmune diseases.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic forum.
With the available details, there appears to be high possibility of acute upper respiratory tract viral infection.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
He should also go for chest x ray to rule out possibility of underlying pneumonia.
Treatment depends on exact diagnosis.
