Pulmonary spots are a term used by laymen for tuberculosis or tuberculosis. TB disease is caused by infection with the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis which is transmitted through the respiratory tract. Although there are many types of TB such as intestinal TB, lymph node TB and so on, pulmonary TB is one of the most common and shortness of breath can be one of the complaints. Tuberculosis treatment takes at least 6 months, and is usually monitored through sputum examination and a series of other supports such as lung X-ray examination, whether there is still positive TB bacteria. If the results are still positive then the treatment can be said to have failed because the bacteria are already resistant to the drug. Then of course the treatment time will increase. We understand your concerns, but the only way to find out is to see a doctor directly for the necessary examinations. Here we attach an article about tuberculosis. Hope it is useful.
