Possible Transmission Of Lung Spots After Being Declared Completely Cured?
evening .. I want to ask again r whether people who have had lung spots can be transmitted to babies even though they have recovered no more spots? It’s just that their breathing still sounds faster r nI am afraid that my child will catch it when near him r begging for an answer yes r nthank you
Lung spots or tuberculosis is a bacterial infection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis which has the ability to be contagious. Treatment of this disease requires a long time at least 6 months or until it is declared cured. However, after finishing treatment it is necessary to maintain the condition of the body so that there is no recurrence of the lung spots disease.
If you have a child while undergoing treatment, the child needs to be checked and later given prophylactic treatment to prevent transmission due to contact with parents and also because the baby is much more susceptible to infection.
Symptoms of TB in children are not always typical of coughing where they show other symptoms such as weight loss or difficulty gaining weight, swollen lymph nodes, fever for no apparent reason, or night sweats.
For that check your child at a doctor or pediatrician for further examination and treatment. Also try to keep the environment where the child lives to be cleaner, and provide good nutrition to help prevent health hazards that can occur.
