Breath in tb bacter again
M now in tb treatment from 2 month. My doctor said i have improved very well n i gotta take treatment for 4 month more. Prb is my brother sleeps with me n i see he is coughing from 1 week n even i can guess it may be bcz of tb. So if i breath in tb bacteria again from him during my treatment thn would i fall in MDR tb or treatment would just kill these new bacteria? Bcz my isoniazid plus n rifampin plus is now ended, m now in normal drug, can normal drug clear these new bactria? I m so stressed n i dont wanna take the treatment for more 2 year.

Immediate contacts must be very careful, Is your brother having night sweats, fever, weight loss Get him tested for TB (Sputum for acid fast bacilli)
You better isolate
