I am a 21 year old girl, developed lymph node enlargement in right axilla and right supraclavicular region in april 2011, was diagnosed as tuberculous lymphadenitis by FNAC , started on ATT( anti tuberculosis treatment ) but after 10 days of treatment , i had a severe reaction and developed stevens Johnson syndrome . Since 1 year, i am recovering from stevens Johnson syndrome. Since 9 months i am taking ayurvedic medicines for tubercular lymphadenitis, the lymph nodes have enlarged a little, they are hard. I have no evening rise of temperature. My appetite is fine now but i had weight loss since mid- 2010 as i was on poor diet. I am anaemic. I want to know what the treatment should be now to get rid of lymph node enlargement as i am very scared to take ATT again ? is there any other form or regime of treatment in ayurveda or homeopathy, etc ? is there any possibility that the reaction (stevens Johnson syndrome) occured because i had been suffering from infection by some other bacteria and not mycobacterium tuberculosis ?? please help ! awaiting a quick response ??

The only treatment available for tuberculosis is ATT (anti- tubercular therapy) and no amount of homeopathic and ayurvedic medicines are going to help you. I can understand that your...
