Symptoms And Treatment Of Tuberculosis Pharyngitis?
Hello, I want to ask. What are the symptoms and treatment of tuberculosis pharyngitis? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Pharyngitis is inflammation of the throat that can trigger a variety of triggers, one of which is due to infection. There are so many microorganisms that can infect the throat and trigger inflammation, often viruses or bacteria. However, although it is very rare, it is not impossible other microorganisms, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. TB), also cause pharyngitis. This condition often attacks people with poor immune systems, for example people with HIV / AIDS, malnutrition, long-term steroid drug users, or cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Similar to other pharyngitis, TB pharyngitis will also cause sufferers to feel uncomfortable sensations in their throat, such as itching, pain, lumps, phlegm, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, coughing, hoarseness, and so on. Not only that, sufferers also often experience a mild fever that does not heal, excessive sweating, weight loss drastically, easily tired, also swelling in the lymph nodes around the neck and / or armpits.
Definitive treatment for TB pharyngitis is done by giving OAT (anti-TB drugs), usually for at least 6 months of treatment. Not only that, several other types of drugs can also be prescribed by doctors according to complaints that arise. At home, so that healing takes place more optimally, patients also need more rest, improve personal and environmental hygiene, increase intake of foods rich in calories and protein, reduce the habit of eating greasy and spicy foods, don't smoke, and regularly exercise.
That's all our explanation. For more details, please consult further with your doctor, ENT doctor, or internist.
I hope this helps.
