If you have started the AKT treatment never ever discontinue .. the same..

kindly consult Govt. hospital as there are many patient who are developing MDR -TB (Multidrug Resisitnace Tuberculosis )



Specific TB hospital and complete control can be achieved if it is diagnosed appropriate and confirmed which is first and important thing ..





IIndly : Allergic bronchitis (as U say it ) have many resaons.. it may from



simple unclean bedsheet to peanuts and other factors that may trigger in you.



daily note down what did you had in home .. for 7 days .. if you any trigger or bouts of cough and wheeze note that details.. do not do it right now as you are already on steriods.. only when you are completely off the steriod therapy then start to record .. understand your trigger factor which is first and foremost important..
