Hello and thank you for your question.
Tuberculosis is an airborn bacterial infection. Once it enters the body it can move to other parts of the body from the lungs like the lymphatic system or even the spine. To help with the cough avoid air conditioning, use some nasal saline spray and make sure you stay well hydrated by drinking at least 2 liters of water daily and avoiding caffeine. Take a multivitamin and get plenty of rest. Take your anti-tuberculosis drugs as prescribed and make sure you are getting regular liver tests.
I hope you are better soon,
Dr. Robinson
