Is It Dangerous If The Glandular TB Ruptures?
HealthReplies.com, My husband has TB Gland. Sometimes the fluid from the lumps seeps from the clothes and about the bed linen. My question is, Is it enough to clean the bed sheets that have TB glandular fluid only with wet tissue? Is it dangerous if the fluid affects a healthy person? Can there be transmission through glandular TB fluid?
Thank you for your question.
In general, TB does not only attack the lungs, but can attack other organs such as bones and glands. Symptoms of glandular TB in addition to the appearance of lumps are also characterized by weight loss and night sweats.
TB treatment takes a long time and requires discipline, because if the treatment is not disciplined then the treatment will be restarted from the start. TB treatment takes 6-9 months.
Penulan from TB is also different, tuberculosis which is transmitted through the air is tuberculosis of the lungs, whereas tuberculosis glands and bones are not transmitted through the air.
It says that your husband has glandular TB and ruptures, which is where the glandular TB fragment will not be contagious if you touch it. The thing to note is that the TB has already received treatment. Because if not given treatment, TB causes complications, including death. Rupture of the TB gland also needs special care, not just cleaning and wiping it. But keep in mind the hygiene, so as not to be infected with other bacteria that make the wound not heal and even make a new wound. My advice, check and control your husband to the doctor to treat your husband's wounds, so that there is no other bacterial infection which will make the wound healing longer.
