read this general information on TB

But check with YOUR doctor, I would tell you I am normal if it meant keeping my job.

You, normal:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: stoppit Kanga, my sides will split.


If it was me Miki, i would not get with 100m of my kids until i had spoken to my own doc, TB is a horrible nasty disease, and very infectious.

When i was 13years old, we were in class one day when the local hospital mediacl team showed up, turned out one of our teachers had caught TB in eastern europe, we all got tested that day and innoculated some time after the lump on our arms had gone down.

Mekaeel, I would certainly in a case like this rather ask a proper doctor, if it was white spot or RTN we could help, but in this case get a Professional

As long as the infected person has been on proper treatment for some weeks already then the chances of it being transmissable is almost nil. However we as South Africans are exposed to TB almost daily and only once a person has a lowered immunity for various reasons then the chances of contracting the disease is actually very small.
I find TB fascinating as its a real issue here and i distribute a few different tests for its presence to laboratories.

Correct, BUT the infected person MUST take their medicine every day. If this worker has already been treated and is considered safe by a medical doctor I would suggest that you make her take the medicine in your presence every day, thus not only assisting her in being cured, but most importantly also protecting your family from being infected.
