Bronchitis And Tuberculosis Are Different?
Good afternoon, this afternoon I went to the puskesmas to consult with a doctor about treatment because my sputum lab results were negative. Then I told him the results of X-rays u0026amp; positive blood while in sputum check (in 2 negative places). I also told you that the symptoms of shortness of breath, night sweats, etc. are still present. Until I told you when I was 10 years old (2010) I had bronchitis. Well, just when I told the doctor to ask, was it given a red drug? Continue to change color urine? I answered yes. Then the doctor said, I had to get injections for 2 months and take medicine for 8 months because he said the tub had recurred. Then I say bronchitis is not the same tb … The doctor said, first bronchitis was tb he said So bronchitis and tb is the same or not huh? relapse now (TB Relapse)?
Bronchitis is a term used for bronchial inflammation, this condition can be caused by a variety of inflammation, airway irritation or due to bacterial or viral infections. The diagnosis of bronchitis is based on symptoms, physical examination and supporting examination, this condition can occur together with other conditions so that the diagnosis is not limited to bronchitis.
While tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. The diagnosis of this condition is made when TB germs are found in sputum or culture. However, doctors can still suspect TB infection if conventional treatment does not provide improvement and found symptoms of tuberculosis. If the inflammation of the bronchus has been treated, there are complaints and physical examinations suggestive of TB and you have a history of TB then your doctor may carry out a TB treatment regimen and it is according to the procedure.
You should discuss with the doctor who treats you directly if you have questions or things that are not clear because of course the doctor who treats you is more understanding about your overall condition than just through online consultation. You can also ask the opinion of other doctors in this regard, I suggest that you consult with a pulmonary specialist to get optimal treatment related to your complaints.
