Hello doctor My name is adiI want to askWhat is contagious tuberculosis lymph nodes in the neck ?? What can also be contagious if having sex

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically, tuberculosis that can be transmitted is pulmonary tuberculosis. Most extrapulmonary tuberculosis will not be contagious, although there is a small possibility that laryngeal tuberculosis can be contagious as well as pulmonary tuberculosis. However, other extrapulmonary tuberculosis (including glandular tuberculosis) will not spread to other people. However, some people who have extrapulmonary tuberculosis (including glandular tuberculosis) can also have pulmonary tuberculosis (sometimes subclinical pulmonary tuberculosis or pulmonary tuberculosis that does not show any symptoms). If indeed there is pulmonary tuberculosis as well, then transmission can occur to other people through droplets released when coughing, sneezing, singing, or screaming. Sexual intercourse also will not transmit glandular tuberculosis.

Although there is no possibility of transmission from glandular tuberculosis, you should continue to treat it with antituberculosis drugs. Make sure you undergo treatment until it is completely finished (at least 6 months or it could be more) and always take control to your doctor regularly.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
