Treatment Of TB Glands That Have Been 7 Months?
Good luck, I want to ask, I was diagnosed with TB Glandular Disease, I have been treated for 7 months. For the 7th month medicine, is it the same as the medicine consumed in the 6th month? Then yesterday I did not take the medicine for 2 days, because the drug was used up, do I have to repeat the treatment from the beginning again? Thank you.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Glandular TB (lymphadenitis TB) refers to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in lymph nodes. This condition is often characterized by the appearance of lumps resembling marbles whose consistency is springy, often feels painful, swollen, easy to move, accompanied by fever, weight loss drastically, excessive sweating at night, weakness, fatigue, fatigue, and many other complaints. These lumps can appear on the armpits, neck, or groin. People with poor immune system and have a history of close contact with other TB sufferers are far more at risk of developing this disease.
In order not to develop into a serious complication, people with TB glands need to get treatment with OAT (anti-TB drugs). This OAT can be given for at least 6 months, it can depend more on your general health condition, TB status, and the responsiveness of TB germs to the treatment given. The types of drugs given can vary depending on the condition. During this period of treatment, your doctor will often recommend that you undergo periodic control to assess whether previous treatment can be continued, added, or possibly reduced so that your disease can be cured more optimally. The potential for recovery of glandular TB depends strongly on the regularity of treatment. In order to work effectively eradicating the germs that cause TB, OAT should ideally be consumed regularly every day at the same hour. Forgotten to consume OAT, especially up to more than 24 hours, is very risky to cause TB germs have resistance (immune to treatment) and the disease can heal longer. Therefore, if you find this condition, you should consult a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine in order to be further evaluated and decided the best treatment.
