Pediatrician 's  Response
Hello subbu,
I am highly concerned for your child having tuberculosis. If your child is having TB, then it should be treated with combination of rifampicin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide, and ethambutol according to RNTCP guidelines. Do not worry, as TB is completely curable disease and it has no future concerns regarding child health. It is better to again consult your pediatrician and confirm the above drug regimen. Your child will be very well soon. Thank you
