Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Treatment of TB infection is different from the treatment of other infections, but requires long-term therapy for 6 to 12 months intensively on daily consumption without interruption. Treatment that is not in accordance with the provisions can lead to resistance or germs that are resistant to antibiotics.
X-ray examination, and sputum are used for treatment evaluation. Sputum examination aims to assess the presence or absence of TB germs on sputum released by TB patients.
In the meantime what you can do include:
Continue to consume drugs as directed by your treating doctor
Maintain a healthy and adequate diet
Consume a lot of water
Sleep and rest enough
Exercise regularly and regularly
Open the window of the house every morning so that the air circulates and sunlight
Avoid dust, cigarette smoke, pollution
Do not smoke
Do not consume alcohol
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
