Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, now a days TB is curable diease n it can be cured within 6 to 9 month. but drugs should be taken regularly for 6 to 9 month. other wise it become drug resistant TB , n then difficult to cure. ask her about regularity of medicine , n side effect of irregularity. if she take drugs 9 month regular then she can be cured. TB can spread only by contect so apply mask n if posible keep your child away from patient.
