Here are some symptoms you should be aware of:
There are 2 types of tuberculosis that can be classified as the following:
* Latent TB:
This is a type of TB infection, where the bacteria in your body is inactive and does not cause any symptoms. It’s also regarded in the medical circles as inactive TB or TB infection that isn’t contagious. However, this type of TB faces the risk of becoming active, therefore treatment is very important.
* Active TB:
This type of tuberculosis can make you extremely unwell and spreads more easily to other people, as compared to latent TB. This can happen even weeks or years after infection.

* Coughing for 3 or more weeks
