Hello Wulandari, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Lung infections can basically be caused by many things, can be by bacteria, viruses, fungi, or by parasites. Meanwhile, lung spots is a more specific term describing infection of the lungs by the bacterium Tuberculosis. Therefore, lung spots are also included in lung infections.
You should reconfirm with your pediatrician who checks your child directly for what illness your child has. If a lung infection is mentioned, you can ask further whether the lung infection in question is a tuberculosis infection or other infection. If indeed based on the tests carried out found tuberculosis infection, then you have to do tuberculosis treatment again. Follow the instructions from your pediatrician about the medication your child needs to take at this time.
