Hi Sunitha,

Thanks for your query on HelathCareMagic.

These pimples do not have any relationship with medicines for tuberculosis.

I suggest that you ask you son to wash his face a few times a day and observe. In case the pimples persist then treatment shall be warranted.

Wishing your son a pimple free period.
