Treatment For Glandular TB?
Hi Reza Alfatah,
TB including glandular TB is an infection caused by infection with the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This bacterial infection requires a long treatment time and adherence to taking medication. TB can infect almost all tissues in the human body.
The cough experienced by your sister may be due to TB, especially because of the exposure factor from your father, but it is also necessary to know other causes of cough such as:
Other infections such as influenza, pneumonia
Do a consultation with a doctor to do an examination on your sister, especially because of the risk factors for exposure to TB infection from your father so that by doing a physical examination and also supporting such as blood tests or sputum examinations it can be known whether the cough you are experiencing is caused by TB infection or caused by other causes. .
In addition, keep the room temperature when sleeping remains warm. Use a mask on your sister when doing outdoor activities and keep it away from exposure to cigarette smoke. Eat nutritious food and get enough rest.
I hope this information is helpful.
