Can cigarette smoking cause relapse of TB ? Cured of TB 3 years back
can cigeratte smoking cause relapse of TB. i was completely cured of TB three years back.i often feel a litle pain on my right side of chest where i had an infection.No of cigerates is 5 to 8 per day. age:25+, 56kgs, female.
Since ur already took treatment for TB, u should b very careful, its better to stop smoking since it damages the lung which is already weak, soo pls stop smoking and get a x-ray and sputum test done to confirm whether it has relapsed.
