Welcome to health care magic
only sputum positive open case of tuberculosis can transfer tuberculosis through kiss.Advice her to take preventive chemotherapy with Isonex 300 mg per day for 2-3 months.
Wish you speedy recovery
TB is spread from aerosols
chances of transmission is there
but if her immunity is good then ,she will not develop it
tell her to eat healthy diet and drink more milk
not to do fast
better to take preventive medicine if she is weak.
