yesterday I was diagnosed with cutaneous tuberculosis but at the last X-ray the diagnosis was Old Lung TB Calm down, do I have a pulmonary tuberculosis?

1 Answer:

Hello Muh Akbar,

Long-standing pulmonary tuberculosis means that there is a picture of a former tuberculosis in the lung where there had been a pulmonary TB infection but it had been treated and is no longer infectious. This condition is generally permanent or does not change but also does not require treatment. Unless you are currently experiencing cutaneous tuberculosis, re-treatment is needed to handle it.

Cutaneous tuberculosis itself is caused by a bacterial infection with tuberculosis. Cutaneous TB is extra-pulmonary / extrapulmonary TB. Symptoms can include rashes, red spots, bumps, crusty skin, and dryness. Treatment of cutaneous tuberculosis is with anti-tuberculosis (OAT) drugs for at least 6 months, it can depend more on the patient's response.

You should discuss again with the doctor who treats you about the results of your X-ray. Make sure you take the medicine as directed by your doctor and do not forget it. It is better to do routine control according to the schedule given by your doctor.

Hope it helps you,

Thank you
