Tuberculosis, commonly known as TB, is a bacterial infection that can spread through the lymph nodes and bloodstream to any organ in your body. It is most often found in the lungs. Most people who are exposed to TB never develop symptoms because the bacteria can live in an inactive form in the body. TB is spread from person to person through the air. When people with lung TB cough, sneeze or spit, they propel the TB germs into the air. A person needs to inhale only a few of these germs to become infected. **Proper medical treatment under the specialists is necessary to get cured.

My father had tb of larynx with primary focal point in lungs last year for which he took medication for 6 months. His sputum test showed negative afb. We assumed he recovered. However, he never gained weigh again after that, and in fact, he lost further weight. On biopsy of enlarged adrenal gland seen in us, the report showed tb of adrenal gland. Now he has again started taking his old tb medication. Can I know how do we go further about it. Will he be fine taking the same medication again? how do we know if the medication is still working?

Was u/s done at first treatment also. If tb of lung/larynx was cured by previous treatment tb of adrenal should also be cured. Any other symtoms excepy wt loss. Get biopsy slide examined from second pathologist. If tb of adrenal only now then by repeat u/s and reduction in tb symtoms. Treatment has to continued for one to one and half year, as it appear to be haematogenous tb.

I am suffering from dry cough for last two weeks and whenever I cough hard my chest was paining.
Chest pain that comes with cough or deep inspiration is an indication of the disease process pleuritis. Essentially in this condition we first prescribed antibiotics and antiallergics along with cough syrups to relieve the patient of cough which might be due to some infection. Hence I believe instead of letting this problem grow you should start taking medicines on the line that I have suggested and you'd be okay no time.

do you have family history of asthama? the right medications for you depend on a number of things, including your age, your symptoms, your breathing triggers and what seems to work best to keep your breathlessness under control. Preventive, long-term control medications reduce the inflammation in your airways that leads to symptoms. Quick-relief inhalers (bronchodilators) quickly open swollen airways that are limiting breathing. In some cases, allergy medications are necessary. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.
