Thanks for choosing can cause vareity of disorders in intestine like fluid collection,lymph nodes,adhesions of intestines so it seems is why your stomach appears tight.Secondary Tb i'e Tb other than lungs can occur if you had exposure to TB and now it has reactivated because of low immunity.Since you arem taking Anti TB treatment you will not be contagious .Dried skin is not related to antitb drug unless you have rash with it.Take care.
