Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking.

White spots in the mouth can be candida infection, which is the fungal infection of the skin and mucous membranes.

It needs systemic antifungal medicines like fluconazole to treat it.

As you are having tuberculosis as well, a combination of tuberculosis and candida argues for the deficient immunity.

Do check your HIV status.
