Good Riski,

as one of the countries with a very high number of TB sufferers, it is important to always be suspicious of TB transmission, especially in people around the patient. This is caused by TB transmission which tends to be simple, that is, only through saliva that comes out through the cough / sneeze process. Therefore it is important for TB sufferers to always wear a mask in order to prevent transmission to people around them, especially children, because the age group of children is among those who are vulnerable to contracting TB disease. As for children, symptoms that can be suspected include:

body weight that does not increase decreased appetite for eating sweat at night in children lethargic and not excited fever shortness of breath In contrast to adults, examination of sputum in children with children generally does not bring significant results. The examination must be carried out by means of a tuberculin test and x-rays accompanied by a physical examination of the child. Therefore we recommend that you check your child directly to the doctor, especially if the symptoms have started to appear. Here we attach an article about TB in children. May be useful.
