Your vasculitis and rashes on limbs suggests that there is some active pathology in your body. Further, the nodule (even though reduced in size) and the Mantoux positivity needs review by a physician specialized in TB treatment. We cannot afford to ignore even small symptoms of this deadly condition (TB). Don't get alarmed, good medicines are now available. Healed choroiditis lesions will not have good visual function. You will need regular followup with your retina specialist.
