Hi!
Welcome to healthcaremagic.com.I presume 48 hours is over by now.What are the readings now??The person's medical risk factors determine at which increment (5 mm, 10 mm, or 15 mm) of induration the result is considered positive. A positive result indicates TB exposure.If positive you will have to take anti tb drugs for a minimum of 6 months-combination will be decided by your physician.Do not self medicate.Tb is totally curable.Take care.

Hi
I am 32 years old man. 3 years back I was suffering from typhoid fever for one and half months. I had taken Azythromycine antibiotic at that time. When the Typhoid fever was gone, I stopped taking this antibiotic. Since then my stools became very loose. 6 months before I caught tuberculosis. Now I am taking Akurit 4 and my health is recovering well. My weight was 55 KG when I was diagnosed with TB. Now I am 68 KG. I am still taking TB drugs. My height is 5 feet 10 inches. But my stools are still loose. I feel sometimes a tendency like vomiting. I told this to my doctor, he prescribed Widal test which came positive. (Typhi O – 1:320, Typhi H- 1:40, Typhi AH- 1:20, Typhi BH- 1:20). The doctor prescribed me Levofloxacin 10 tablets. When I taken Levofloxacin according to the prescribed dose, the vomiting gone away. But my stools are still very loose. I am also taking probiotics and prebiotics also as prescribed by my doctor. I again told the doctor about loose stools. He prescribed Rifaximine (RIFAGUT) antibiotic, 10 tablets and some probiotic combination (VSL#3 and Lifelac capsules). I have taken all the dose of Rifaximine. But there seems no use. What can I do for getting rid of loose stools? Please prescribe me some medicine as soon as possible. I am very nervous. Please help me.
