In recent decades, artificial intelligence (AI) has found numerous applications in the field of medicine. In this paper, the key idea is that doctors are not available at emergency or doctors may do some mistakes by coincidence. To overcome or eliminate these problems, here we consider some diseases and design a prototype. In this work, we investigate different types of diseases according to various infectious agents (bacteria, virus, and parasite) and the respective diseases caused by them. Afterward, we make a formulation so that it deals with history of the disease and prescribing the proper medications according to the disease detected.
