My wife is suffering from tubacular lymphednitis (confirmed by fnac last year) on the left side of the lymph node of neck. It is in cervical lymph node and is in swollen condition. She took t. B. Medicine and during t. B. Treatment swollen lymph node started coming to the normal shape. But after the 5th month of medicine, lymph node suddenly started increasing its size. In the seventh month we done the ultra sound of that lymph node, which showed there is a pus inside it. I have also gone for the fnac again and it again showed that t. B. Infection is still there. For further clarification and the drug sensitivity, I go for the culture test of myco bacterium of t. B. Of the pus aspirated from swollen lymph node, which further show negative results as no afb came in that. This situation has become very complicated as fnac show t. B. Infection but culture shows no signs of t. B. Infection. I again go for the fnac which again came positive with t. B. Infection and after that I have also gone for the histopathology for the specimen of the lymph node and again the culture of the specimen of the lymph node, its again came negative. Histopathology only showed inflammation and necrotising nothing else. So please suggest something helpful as the situation is very complicated as fnac test is showing t. B. Infection and other test are coming negative.

You look your best when you wear a smile on your face. Everyone prefers a smiling face over a frowned one. Since we are talking about smiles, one can never underestimate the role that teeth play in the beauty of a smile. Dental hygiene and care is mandatory if you wish to secure your beautiful smile for years to come.
However, the global statistics for dental care suggests that we do not care enough for our teeth. 60-90% of children who are in school and almost every adult suffer from dental cavities. Dental cavities are pretty common nowadays. And yellowing of teeth can now be seen in almost every other person. It spoils the smile and makes people conscious. By ensuring a few dental care habits in your daily routine lives, you can avoid yellow teeth.
Let us discuss the tips and tricks to avoid yellowing of teeth:
- Say no to specific foods: Yellowing of teeth is caused by food choices including coffee, red wine, sodas, juices, sports drinks, white wine, coloured candies and other artificially coloured foods. It will help if these foods are consumed in less quantity and frequency as they are the major contributors towards discoloration of teeth.
- Water after every coloured drink: Here is a habit that you must inculcate in your routine, whenever you consume any of the above mentioned food items. Post every drink or food intake which can cause tooth-staining, top it up with a glass of water. When you swirl or gargle the water in your mouth, you remove the acids that get accumulated in your mouth. It is one of the simplest preventive measures one can implement to avoid tooth stains.
- Dental Hygiene: Our parents and dentists kept reminding us all the time to brush twice a day and gargle with water post every food intake but did we listen to them as kids? No we did not. Proper brushing, flossing and going for dental checkups at regular intervals are sure shot ways to keep your teeth healthy for majority of your lifetime. One must develop these habits quite early in life to gain benefits from it.
- Whiten those Yellow teeth: You might be at that stage of your life where inculcating the above mentioned habits won't do much good. The damage might already have been done. Your teeth are probably yellowish already and you have a history of dental cavities. In this 21st century, there are ways to whiten your teeth artificially with the many alternatives available in the market. One can opt for a solution, which can be done at home itself or go for a laser whitening which is now possible at a dentist clinic.
So there is still hope for those who are unable to share that smile with the world due to the yellowing of teeth. Nothing is irreparable here and the health of your teeth lies in your hand.
