I have been diagnosed with TB with Effusion - a fluid in the lungs. My doctor prescribed me anti-TB drugs [Rifampicin, Isoniazid, Pyrazinamide and Ethambutol] for 2 months for the intensive phase plus the Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) and Dibencozide for my poor appetite and discussed the normal side effects. I know that skin rashes is a common side effect of Ethambutol. But I can't take much longer this rashes because aside from its itchiness, its spread all over my abdomen. How can i solve this problem? Is there a medicine or ointment that can heal this rashes? Thank you.

I am Athar. I am suffering from cough for the last three weeks. No other symptoms. I used to suffer from Phileria, esinophilis. Earlier whenever I suffered from cough, sneezing, knee or foot pain I used to take Benocide Forte tabs for one week and got relief. Once Phileria attacked my hydrocil also and I got operated for that 4 years ago. This time I also took Benocide Fort for cough but no relief. Pl. tell me my cough is due to TB or any thing else?
