Only an aspiration and cultrure of the abscess fluid will confirm if this is Tubercular or not. IN the meanwhile, AKT is started to prevent furthur spread of infection. Both second and third doctors have suggested AKT with supplements. Earlier, there must have been a fear of acute abscess extending to the brain and so first doctor gave an antibiotic.
But with chronic anscess and low grade fever, the infection is most commonly tubercular.

I’m not sure what you want to know – You have to decide whether you want to continue with AKT and the adivse of an expert orthopaedic doctor. This treatment will continue for a year at least. Best to avoid streptomycin injections.

Whtehr homeopathy will treat this/ Homeopathic can – but will you find a homeopath expert in treating Pott’s Spine? That day is yet to come and it will.
