Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The use of drugs for infection from tuberculosis has a regimen that will usually be adjusted to the condition of the tuberculosis bacteria in the body. If the new condition is usually the regimen used is category 1 which uses drugs in the form of rifampicin, isoniazie, pyrazinamie, and ethambutol. Tablets that are formed are usually already in fixed doses in the form of fixed drug therapy.
For an allergy related to a drug is usually seen with reactions such as the appearance of symptoms in the form of a rash on the skin, appearing in the form of small reddish spots or can also be a broad rash like an island. For allergies usually enforced by a physical examination by a doctor, especially a skin specialist.
If it is indeed an allergic condition to rifampicin, desensitization will generally be carried out by adjusting the dose starting from the smallest dose in order to prevent the formation of antibodies that cause reactions to the drug. It is expected that the body's reaction to allergies can be more suppressed. Desinsitiation technique needs to be done first because rifampicin is a very important drug for controlling infection from tuberculosis. If with this technique there is still an allergic reaction then you should consult your condition with the doctor who gave you a prescription, then it can be referred or further consultation with a lung specialist
Thus the information we can convey. Thank you.
