Hello Doc, my brother previously had a pulmonary tuberculosis and was declared cured, and a year later on his right lower neck there was a lump, had been removed and a blood sample from the lump had resulted in a lump in the pus. The doctor also has sentenced to glandular tuberculosis, my brother has been taking tb medicine for 2 months. For only 2 days, the bumps produced pus, the normal condition of pus is not too much but when the night’s sleep conditions always produce a lot of pus. Is this really a side effect of a drug that is consumed or is there another reason doc, please explain. thanks.

Hello Lenny, thanks for the question.


Glandular TB is an infection caused by the bacterium Microbacterium tuberculose which attacks the lymph nodes. The formation of pus is the body's natural mechanism when fighting infection or as a form of inflammatory response that occurs in the body due to bacterial infection, one of which is TB Gland.


If a lump in the neck has ruptured and secreted pus is very important to keep the wound clean and the surrounding area. Immediately consult this matter with your treating doctor before.


To speed up recovery, besides taking your medication according to the doctor's instructions some of these things you can do:

Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Expand fruits and vegetables
Consumption of water at least 8 glasses per day
Enough rest
Regular exercise
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol
Do not hold or squeeze the broken part of the lump to remove pus
Do not use any medicine outside the one given by the doctor
Perform routine control according to the agreed schedule

That's all, hope it helps.
