A pathogen is an organism that causes disease in its host and will definitely harm it.
A parasite is an organism that steals nutrients from its host and may harm it.

If this is inaccurate please use google.
Hope I helped.

A pathogen is a disease causing microorganism, while a parasite is any organism that feeds saphrotropically or parasitically i.e, it lives in the person and consumes their resources, but is not a direct cause of disease. TB bacteria is a pathogen, while tape worm is a virus.
