Hello there.
Welcome to healthcare magic forum..
I think you have developed resistance against the common tb medications Thats why you are having increase in the size of swelling despite treatment.. You need to discuss with your doctor about the second line of medications available for treatment of tb...
Hope this helps.
Get well soon..
Take care..
