Maybe you mean TB lymphadenitis (tuberculosis).
Mycobacterium tuberculosis can indeed infect a variety of organ systems, including the lymph nodes. These bacteria usually enter through the respiratory tract, especially in people who come in close contact with other TB sufferers, children, the elderly, and people with poor immune system. Under normal conditions, this lymph node functions as a haven and proliferation of white blood cells in warding off infections, including TB infection. However, along with its development, this lymph node itself can actually become infected, so that arises lymphadenitis. Clinically, TB lymphadenitis sufferers will experience lumps (often in the neck, armpits, or groin) that are round, smooth, springy, and often feel painful, especially when pressed. Not only that, TB lymphadenitis can also make sufferers experience fever, excessive sweating, weight gain is difficult to rise, weakness, fatigue, and various other complaints.
Handling TB lymphadenitis is done by giving OAT (anti-TB drugs) that must be consumed by sufferers for at least 6 consecutive months. Every month, the patient will be re-evaluated by a doctor to assess his responsiveness to the treatment given. After more than 2 months of treatment, complaints will generally improve slowly.
However, you need to know, that the treatment of TB lymphadenitis must also be accompanied by appropriate natural treatments, including those related to diet, regulation of activities, and also lifestyle modification. This inadequate treatment is likely to make your mother appear to be undergoing improvement despite long-term treatment. It could also, the slow healing process occurs due to the non-optimal resistance of your mother's body, resistance (immunity) of bacteria to the treatment given, as well as a variety of other factors. Compared with other complaints. lumps in lymph nodes due to TB lymphadenitis often will indeed not disappear completely, even though the patient's status has recovered from illness.
The itching that your mother is experiencing right now could be a side effect of the OAT she is taking. It could also, this itching occurs due to other reasons, for example allergies, skin irritation, infections, disorders of liver function, disorders of the thyroid gland, dry skin, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, and so on.
Our advice, you check your mother back to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine in order to get the right treatment. Meanwhile, at home, help your mother do the following steps:
Take OAT as recommended by your doctor
Give your mother healthy and nutritious food, containing rich calories and protein
Give him too much to drink
Let your mother take a break from exhausting activities
Accompany him to exercise
Create a clean, well-ventilated and well-lit environment
If you or someone else around your mother shows symptoms of TB infection, see your doctor directly to treat them properly
Hope this helps ...
