Skin lesions during / after TB treatment is not so uncommon...  The skin lesion is known as leukocytoclastic vasculitis but your skin lesion is different or it may be an early stage... If you are facing this type of skin lesion after ATT then you must consult your doctor.. Diagnosis of tip of iceberg is very important for better treatment and compliance... Keep informing what they diagnosed..  All d best..

Hello There. I can understand your concern. It doesn't looks like due to the tuberculosis medications, but you have not mentioned what medications you are taking also in this question. it looks somewhat like a lichen but i would strongly suggest you to consult a dermatologist in person because without examining, i may be wrong also. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
