Hi
Welcome to
Health care Magic

fever and rashes are due to the side effects of anti TB drugs..
yes you must continue drugs until the complete dose... dose depends on the category whether 6 or 8 months.. consult gynaecologist and doctor for TB& chest diseases.

Hi,
If you have problem with some drugs there are other substitutes are available and you may have these drugs on alternate of the drugs causing problem.
For this you consult your physician and discuss.
At least you have to take these medicines for six months.

My son is 5 years old now. We stayed in USA for 1 year and went for a vacation to India like 4 months and returned 2 months back . The school asked for a medical routine test and a TB test. Our paediatrician did the PPD and there was rash in the skin. The blood test result turned Positive now and the doctor is asking for a chest X ray now. My question iS my son is perfectly alright and he doesn t had cold or cough or fever or any other symptoms of TB . We are more worried now. Please do clarify what might be the reason for this positive test result ? My son was given BCG at the time of birth and the blood result came positive not because of BCG vaccine .
