My boyfriend was positive for TB?
People who are infected with tuberculosis do not feel sick, do not have any symptoms, and cannot spread TB. But they may develop tuberculosis disease at some time in the future. People with tuberculosis disease can be treated and cured if they seek medical help. Even better, people who have tuberculosis infection but are not yet sick can take medicine so that they will never develop tuberculosis disease. His x-ray came back perfect... I had testeing done a few days ago and my came back good. i live with him along with our 2 kids... How can i protect them from this if it is what it is... I dont understand how he would get this..... He just went to the dept.of health him going there wont it increase his risks of developing TB especially cuz there's people there with it?
