Cough, green substance coughed out. What to do?

Hi Doctor. I am 29 yr old. I have a cough from around 1 month, and I get green colour substance that usually comes if we have cold when I cough. This is not curing and I suppose I have TB seeing the advertisement of Bulgum bhai that Government is conducting. I have also consulted a physician long back around 1 month before regarding this but of no use. Please tell me what to do in this regard..Thank you.

Hello raghumankala. Some of the symptoms of TB are night sweats, loss of weight, coughing up blood, severe fatigue, positive TB skin test (PPD) and cultured acid fast bacillus (tuberculosis) from sputum. A positive chest xray showing cavitation is another symptom of TB. At this time, it is unlikely that you have TB with the symptoms you have described.

If you have been exposed to a person who has active TB, contact your local health department or your family physician for screening.

Be well, Dr. Kimberly
