Can TB disease be cured?
Yes. Using special drugs that kill TB germs can cure TB disease. It takes at least six to nine months of medication to wipe them all out. If medication is taken properly after one to two weeks, a person with TB disease may no longer be contagious to others. It is very important to take all medication as prescribed.
