Hello Intan, thank you for asking.
Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by an acid-resistant bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This disease attacks the respiratory tract and other organs throughout the body. Almost all organs in the body can experience tuberculosis infection. Although still most infections occur in the respiratory tract. Lymph node TB treatment is the same as pulmonary TB, only the dosage and combination of drugs may have to be adjusted according to the type of TB, whether latent TB or active TB.
Latent TB if the patient does not show symptoms, but the examination of the TB test obtained positive results. Active TB if the typical symptoms are experienced by the patient and a positive TB test.
In addition to classification based on activity, TB is also classified by type of case. New TB cases, repeat cases, drug withdrawal cases, and drug resistant cases. If a person has been undergoing TB treatment routinely and according to the set time, but TB has not disappeared, then it is also possible that the TB is a drug resistant (immune) TB.
TB treatment lasts for months, so of course there will be side effects on the patient. Side effects can include nausea, vomiting, impaired liver function, impaired kidney function, change in urine color. The possibility of this is meant by 'poisoning' by doctors. It is recommended that you take your child to a pulmonary specialist at a referral center hospital. Cases of active TB that are suspected of drug resistant TB must be diagnosed in detail and then get very strict treatment. Treatment must be carried out completely under the supervision of a doctor so as not to forget even once. In the meantime, try to keep your child from close contact with people other than family, to avoid transmission. All families who have close contact with children should also get a TB test to be detected early.
Thus my explanation, hopefully it can be useful. Regards.
