I wanted to know if having latent tuberculosis means that you absolutely should take the medication to get rid of the infection?


Posted by annahongo

I recently went to the doctors and they told me that I had a positive result from the tuberculosis skin test, and he's scheduling a chest x-ray for me. I'm pretty sure I have latent tuberculosis since I don't have any symptoms of tuberculosis. I won't know until I get the chest x-ray, and I just wanted to know if having latent tuberculosis required taking medication. Is having the infection a life threatening situation, or would I be paranoid to think about taking the medication?
