Transmission Of Pulmonary Tuberculosis?
Good evening, I have been in this month (every evening) hanging out with those who have lung spots that I just found out this afternoon. I went straight to the health center but was asked to come when I coughed my sputum. To the pharmacy want to buy tbc immune instead asked to try to check on rsparu2.And already 3 days I have a fever (initially the fever after a day in hot weather and then at 5 am in the rice fields continue to night fever), already drunk paracetamol and vit. I have a fever so I’m curious ,, is there any input? Thank you.
TB transmission can indeed occur due to close contact with the sufferer, especially if the TB patient still has active bacteria so that it can be transmitted through saliva splashes while talking, coughing or sneezing. Symptoms or early signs that need to be aware of tuberculosis infection itself include:
Cough more than 3 weeks
Fever without apparent cause
Enlarged lymph nodes
For the fever itself is not always only due to TB infection but many causes of fever such as other respiratory infections, infections due to viruses, digestive tract infections, urinary tract infections, lack of fluids, arthritis and many other causes.
If you really feel afraid of contracting tuberculosis, it is better to do an examination with a sputum sample examination, IGRA blood lab examination, or X-rays. Consult your condition with a doctor or a lung specialist at a health facility that is equipped with supporting examinations to make it easier if further testing is needed, such as in a polyclinic at the hospital.
If the fever lasts more than 3 days, watch for other symptoms that arise and check immediately so that the exact cause is known. Inadequate need for rest, drink lots of water, eat healthy foods, keep your diet, take paracetamol if you have a fever and get tested immediately.
