I am Rudi. My father has tuberculosis. So I feel sorry every time I spit I have to go to the bathroom which is quite far away … I gave him a bucket of water in the room so that it is not far away to spit it out … .. apart from carbolic / lysol there are no other alternatives .. thanks in advance

Dear Rudi,


It is true that the sputum secreted by TB sufferers can contain TB bacteria that can be inhaled by others if not treated properly. Therefore, apart from routine treatment for at least 6 months, TB sufferers are also advised to pay attention to where to remove their saliva or sputum. You can remove phlegm wrapped in a closed tissue, or you can throw it in a container that has been given antiseptic solution. If you have trouble finding carbolic acid / lysol, then you can use alcohol mixed with betadine, although of course it will be a little more expensive. However, a simpler way is to use an undiluted floor cleaner disinfectant, which can be purchased at the nearest supermarket. Here we attach an article regarding the transmission of TB. May be useful.
