Our expert says:
You can have a free TB screening x/ray at your local municipal clinic if you are worried, or ask your doctor to just send you for a chest x/ray to be sure. Tb usually causes weight loss and night sweats but any persistant cough needs to be followed up. One can pick up TB anywhere - in the supermarket or the mall, if your immunity is low!
The itchy skin could be an eczema - try Stopitch cream?
