Hi I have diagnosed with endometrium TB. Completed 1 month treatment with Rif+INH. For other two drugs I have rash and fever . So may continue with two drugs only. Is it right way and how long to follow this treatment.
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.
u need to continue all drug in tb
if u have reaction to some drug then ask doctor to change drug which doesnot cause
there r alternative drug ,which can be use.
depend upon tb u may need to take it from 6 to 12 month
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 .

Hi, I have had UTI like symptoms for 5 years. I have had many, many cultures - all neg. I have also had a bladder ultrasound - again normal, I have tried creams for dermatitis etc. I just read recently that Latent TB can show symptoms of a UTI - 5 years ago - when symptoms first appeared, I was working in an orphanage in Central Asia (ex-soviet state) when drug resistant TB was rife and visiting children regularly in a TB hospital, so I have definitely been exposed. I had terrible pneumonia last year which took a long time to diagnose, and for a while they suspected TB but it didn t show up in my lungs. Could it still possible cause for my UTI - is it worth getting checked?

What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step
