Brief Answer:
Yes it can be treated by other medicines.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

Once you have been declared treatment completion under DOTs, means that you have received a full course of treatment and has not become smear positive at the end of the treatment.

So you are not having TB bacilli in your body. The symptoms of nasal secretion and mucus running is may be due to other conditions like infections by virus or bacteria and allergy. I would suggest you to follow

1.Take steam inhalation with Vapocaps
2.Antihistamines like Tab Montek LC, once daily for 15 days.

These measures will help to reduce the symptoms and improve your condition, if the symptoms are not improving you may need lab investigations like CBC and absolute eosinophil count (AEC) to know the exact cause of your symptoms.

Thank you.

My husband is having higher eosinophil count (15) but he is not having any any symptoms like asthma or parasitic infection or any skin infection related to any alergy. Recently he went through regular test and it has been found. Stool test was also done but no parasite fount. No sadow detected in chest and he has never had fever and ffatigueness. I want to know the reason behind this abnormal growth of Eosinophil in WBC. Is it because of genetic reason as his father is having asthma? Can it cause towards any kind of Cancer? How to bring the count down? What other test can be done to know if it is going toward fatal cancer?
