Hello Single, thank you for asking.
Tuberculosis is a chronic disease caused by tuberculosis bacteria. This disease is systemic, meaning that it can attack almost all human body systems, not just the respiratory system. Typical symptoms of TB are in the form of cough with phlegm continuously (months), fever that occurs, loss of weight, and general bad condition (weak, lethargic). As long as TB is not treated, the symptoms will continue to disappear and arise. Paracetamol consumption may be provided as long as it is in dosage and does not cause allergies. However, as long as the fever can still be overcome by drinking plenty of water, try to drink more water and not completely depend on the effects of paracetamol.
In addition, people with TB, especially untreated active TB, will be prone to other infections. Infection can affect the respiratory tract or other organs. Other infections combined with TB bacterial infections will cause bad symptoms. Then it is better for your mother to consult properly, directly to the lung doctor. If at present your mother's TB has not been treated, start treatment routinely immediately. The doctor will also check for infections other than TB. Make sure the water intake of 2 L per day and multiply the consumption of vegetables and fruit. Get enough rest, sleep 6-8 hours a night.
Hopefully this answer is quite useful. Regards.
