The Cause Is Still Coughing After Recovering From Tuberculosis?
Hello, I want to ask, I was diagnosed with tuberculosis last year and then took treatment for 6 months at the health center and was declared cured. when tired, guess what because of that? And whether this tuberculosis can recur?
Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tuberculosis is an infection condition by bacteria, especially mycobacterium which can occur chronically where the bacteria will cause inflammation in the lung area. With symptoms usually are coughs that can reach the condition of bleeding, weight loss and night sweats. This can happen repeatedly called a tuberculosis reactivation condition. Or secondary infections can also occur in the form of infections that are in other areas of the body such as the spine, stomach, until the brain. So it is important that control after treatment is completed at the start is usually 1 month to 3 months and then continued with control every 3 months and every 6 months. This will depend on the condition of each person and the condition of the infecting bacteria.
We recommend that if symptoms recur, you should see your doctor again because this can be a reactivation or can be other causes such as
Viral infections Disorders of the structure of the respiratory tract area due to infection before or exposure to pollution Thus is the information that we can convey. Thanks.
