Anti tb treatment has to be taken regularly at home for six to nine months depending upon the infection. Regimens for treating tb disease have an intensive phase of 2 months, followed by a continuation phase of either 4 or 7 months (total of 6 to 9 months for treatment). This is the preferred regimen for patients with newly diagnosed pulmonary tb.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Pleural effusion, sometimes referred to as “water on the lungs,” is the build-up of excess fluid between the layers of the pleura outside the lungs. The pleura are thin membranes that line the lungs and the inside of the chest cavity and act to lubricate and facilitate breathing.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Lymph node tb is a serious condition with a several months treatment plan. Antibiotics like isoniazid, rifampin, and ethambutol are prescribed by physicians. Oral steroids are also used to reduce the inflammation. In severe cases, surgery is also recommended to remove the large nodules around the neck.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. In most people who breathe in tb germs and become infected, the body is able to fight the tb germs to stop them from growing. The tb germs become inactive, but they remain alive in the body and can become active later. This is called latent tb infection, or ltbi for short.
