Hello dear,

Thank you for your contact to health care magic.

I read and understand your concern.

I am Dr Arun Tank answering your concern.

Anti TB treatment is a long therapy.

You have to take the treatment until you can completely cured with it.

In many cases there is resistant in the tuberculosis bacteria. Thus can cause treatment difficult to treat.

I advixebuou should test for the GeneXpert test. This test will detect the resistant to the tuberculosis bacteria and can give us idea regarding the cure.

Please do not discontinue the treatment until you are fully cured.

Surgical instruments are usually sterilised before they are used so, there is no chance of tuberculosis by this way.

You can keep good local hygiene as this can be helpful for the treatment.

I will be happy to answer your further concern on

Thank you,

How contageous is it? Amelia is 5 yrs old, is underweight, thin, was having night sweats and all the glands in her neck are like golf balls. on the skin test there is a positive reaction. She has a brother, and a 4 month old sister. Her father had TB 3 years ago. How contageous is it. We have taken a sample of sputum of both father and mother and sent it for testing. She has been playing with other smaller children, and I am concerned that they could have been infected.

Hi I am experiencing severe-mild menstrual like cramps on my lower left side but no period.

Also, I had a pap 5 months ago & it was normal, so my fears of ovarian cancer are kinda at rest. What do you think?
