Hi lybrate-user! you can use steam inhalation with karvol plus. But consult a pulmonologist / ent surgeon before taking any medication. Avoid taking cough syrups without doctor's advice. If you get such cough cold frequently you must get checked up to rule out allergic respiratory diseases, asthma, rhinosinusitis. So visit your specialist soon.

Tuberculosis is a disease which can make a patient really weak and underweight. During that condition if the patient becomes pregnant, then its a really tough time for patient and growing fetus in womb. I suggest you to advice her to be in treatment of tb specialist as well as obstetrician regularly so that the case is manged well.
