Hi! Shenh ask mo sa doktor niya. Doktor lng niya ang makakasgot miyan… Sa baby ko nman may primary complex din cia kakastart pa lng nmin ng knyang gamutan nung july may pagbabago agad akong nkita kc nag gain cia ng weight niya tpos ung lymph node niya lumiliit although nkakapa ko pa pero hndi na matigas katulad ng dati. Sbi ng doktor niya hndi agad mawawala yun. I suggest n i-ask mo doktor niya tungkol dun.

good day… my baby who is one yr and three weeks old was diagnosed to have primary complex… i am really worried since we cannot identify where she got the disease… she just got fever without coughing… after reading your post, i am relieved that i still can have hope of her getting well… she is also an active baby and she is still learning to walk… i am really sad everytime she cries … again thank you …
by the way, were there side effects with your baby? we just gave her first dose of medicine this morning…thank you again and God bless…..
May 25, 2015 at 2:21 pm
Hi annie, I’m glad my sharing have somehow lifted your spirit… yes, your baby will get well after six months, you’ll see 🙂 As for the side effects, as far as I know my daughter didn’t have any side effects…
you’re welcome and God bless too… 🙂

Hi, actually i came across your blog kasi my baby is payat and super walang appetite. She is no 2 3/4 yrs old. And still weighs 11+ kgs lang. Wala syang ubo or anything. Papacheck up ko palang sya kasi nga nagaalala nako. Active sya at masayahun. My question is, super hirap nya painumin ng vitamins. At lagi nasasayang kahit imix ko pa sa juices or anything. Wag naman sana pero Pano nyo pinapainom ng gamot baby mo and ilang taon sya nung nadiagnos? Thanks.

June 22, 2015 at 8:07 am
Hi Lhen, baka iba yung cause ng ubo ng anak mo. Like what your pedia told you, ot might be an asthma. But yes, I understand you, until you couldn’t confirm it yet, hindi mapanatag ang loob mo. We had our repeat x-ray within a month after finishing her medication.

hi good day to all!!!my daughter had primary complex when she was 6months.. ganun din pinayo ng kanyang pedia anim n buwang gamutan thanx to God after ng gamutan gumaling po sya..Ngayon po ay 6 years old na sya lagging inuubo at kahit anong gamot at antibiotic ay di xa gumagaling at dun n lng namin nalaman na bumalik yung kanyang primary complex..another 6 months ulit na gamutan kami..sa totoo lng naaawa n po ako sa anak ko kc nahinto n sya s pag – aaral at need pang gumising ng 6:30 para lng uminom ng gamot…Tanong ko lng hanggang sa paglaki po ba ng anak ko eh pwede bumalik ang primary complex???thanx po sa inyo
October 22, 2015 at 8:13 am
sabe naman ng pedia ng anak ko dahil ngpositive sya sa tb dn dapat hanapin din sa adult kung sinu ang carrier din lalo na yung mga lage nyang kasama sa bahay.kase kahit gumaling na sya pwede talagang bumalik yun

August 27, 2015 at 2:34 pm
Hi kasama ba sa sintomas yung ubo at lagnat tuwing madaling araw yung baby ko kasi inuubo at my sipon tapos tuwing madalingaraw my lagnat thanks sa reply
August 27, 2015 at 3:22 pm
Hi marlon, hindi ko sure, pero hindi naman nilagnat at inuubo ang baby ko noon. Kung lampas na ng tatlong araw yung ubo’t lagnat ng baby nyo, mas magandang ipa-consult mo sya sa pedia at nang malaman kung ano talaga ang sakit nya.
September 13, 2015 at 1:28 am

May 4, 2016 at 3:53 am
hello sis! kumusta na po ang gamutan nyo ng baby mo,? yesterday lang na sinabi pedia na positive daw sa xray at dn cya ppd test gusto din dra na start na meds.
October 30, 2015 at 2:37 pm
Hi.. We just started 3n1 kit last oct 26 after my son,2yrs old diagnosed with primary complex. May i know if your baby also experience slight fever during early take of the medicine?
November 6, 2015 at 5:35 am
Bad news! Lumbas na xray result. Positive s primary complex, ung PPD test is negative. Pro still gagamutin na ang primary complex mas binabasehan kc ang xray. Im very sad and disappointed s result. Ang tanong ko san nya nakuha, wala nmn inuubo dto s bahay. Nakakapanghina.
Para ako binagsakan ah. Salamat s mga nagpost dto, nakakagaan ng feeling kc madami ang gumagaling. D ko lang matanggap na may primary ang babg ko he is 2 and 3 mos.now
November 6, 2015 at 5:50 am
So bale bawal na makisalamuha ung anak ko s ibang bata para d makahawa? Ganun po yun dba? Kht mas matanda sa kanya
November 6, 2015 at 6:37 am
Hi mae, actually nakalimutan ko na, four years ago pa kasi itong post Maybe you can try to backread sa mga comments sa part 1.
November 6, 2015 at 10:17 am
Wala po eh. I’ll ask my pedia na lang. So far inaantay ko pa din ung 2 read ng xray. Sana nmn may good news. Para kasi amg dating s akin ng primary complex napakabigat
November 10, 2015 at 12:44 pm
Hindi po nakakahawa and primary complex once ng start na mag gamot so don’t worry mae. You child can still play with other kids.
November 10, 2015 at 12:46 pm
Ung daughter ng officemate ko ng positive din sa xray but negative sa ppd. Advised ng doctor 1 month lang daw na gamutan.
November 16, 2015 at 6:52 am
Is rifamficin and isoniazid be taken 3 times a day or only 1 time in a day? Cos ive read in an article that these 2 meds should be taken b4 bfast… one says she’d prefer administering it to her kids in between lunch and dinner.. so which is which?
Thanks and pyrazinamide also 3 x a day as well?
November 16, 2015 at 7:00 am
Hello nova. Thanks for this info. We just visited our pedia and my son got a positive result from ppd. We are now scheduled for xray. Hopefully things will be okay. I really appreciate your valuable info. Thanks so much. God bless.
November 26, 2015 at 12:18 am
Hi Nova, found your blog while browsing about Primary Complex…sadly, my daughter got positive results both on her ppd and xray. Sa case nyo, were you able to trace kung saan galing ang pc ni baby. Our pedia’s recommending na magpa xray din kami, we haven’t though 🙁 nakakadepress kapag bata ang may sakit, and possible na sa amin manggaling. God bless your baby, and those babies on the same situation, sana gumaling na rin baby ko.
November 27, 2015 at 9:53 pm
meron din po ang anak kong primary complex., 1 month na xa nag tetake ng gamot., napaka mahal po kasi 10 days lang kelangan na ulit bumili ,so nagdecide ako na lumapit sa center, nabigyan naman po ako ng gamot., then i asked my doctor if ok lang yung replacement. sabi nya, di daw nya kilala yung gamot, so baka mag evolve lang ang virus.. sayang naman ang nahingi kong gamot, natry mo ba mag iba ng brand?
December 22, 2015 at 9:50 am
Hi! My son is just turned 3 last Nov 2015 and he’s under medication for more than 2 mos now and he seems not to be gaining weight. ALso, he doesn’t like the rifampicin natricin strawberry (Kidz Kit 2). Ang hirap painom niluluwa lagi and I have to force him to take the medicine everyday every morning and dahil niluluwa I have to repeat or add another ml of dosage but not sure if I am giving exact amount of rifampicin natricin. Also, is it bad if magkasunod na pinapainom ung both meds (Kids Kit 2)???
February 8, 2016 at 8:13 am
Hi mom. What name your pedia? And location?
Kasi young panaganay ko ganun din malnourished saw sabi sa center ngayon naghahanap po ako ng experts sa pulmo… Thanks

April 19, 2016 at 3:27 am
Hi Crisanta, hindi ko alam kung recommendable ba ang x-ray sa 8 months old. I think it is best to trust your doctor. Hindi kasi ako doctor so I don’t know.
May 20, 2016 at 3:23 pm

Thank you for sharing your story. My daughter has weak lungs also. Only a week ago on her first check up to a new pediatric Dra. her symptoms was just cough and colds, but aside from giving us medicine for her cough and colds. Her pedia first suggested us to take the anti-tuberculosis medicine for month. Because she thinks that its possible that my child has weak lungs. And we will have another check up after 1 month. I’m afraid but still prepairing myself for this possibility. So i browse the net and found your article. Thank you for sharing your story. It’s very encouraging for us to know how you and your child overcome her sickness. Gob bless. I hope that she will get even stronger. That no sickness can make her weak again. God is always with us. Guides and protects us. Even in the midst of trouble. His always at work. And He uses your story to let us know how to face this kind of illness. Thank you so much.

I hope u can answer my question about my son, he was xray and have a blood test ang he is positive in primary complex, but i decided to have a second opinion from the other doctor and he have a skin test and it was a negative result. What do u think so i stick to the first test which is xray and bloodtest or should i conseider the skin test?
October 15, 2016 at 4:56 pm
This really helps. Your writeup really helps 🙂
Thanks be to God!

I just heard yesterday from my sister in law that my nephew (2 years old and 4 months) have Primary Koch’s infection. They live in Baseco, Port Area Manila. I was wondering if you live in Manila. If yes, can i maybe ask for the name of your pediatrician. I am trying to look for a pedia in the neighborhood of Tondo, Binondo and Intramuros.
Thanks in advance for the response.
February 2, 2017 at 5:09 am
Thanks for this info. This is very helpful. My son’s xray result is positibe with Koch’s Infection. Meeting with her pedia in 3 days. I dont know how much ang mga meds. At least I have idea. I mean i was thinking baka during the meds kailangan p nya ng nebulization

Hi sis, my baby was also diagnosed with PCB. Normal lang ba na magkaron si ng cough and flu kapag nagtake siya ng KIDZ KIT 2? How long would the lymph node will disappear?
Faith sumbi says
March 5, 2017 at 10:38 pm
hello. thankful ako mommy nova na nabasa ko ang blog mo. parang same din yung nangyari sa akin when we had xray. sabi sa reading, hilar pmeumonia. that time kasi medyo inuubo na si baby ko. btw, she is 25 months. payat. maputla at di maganang kumain. pero active cya. positive din yung palpable lymph nodes nya sa leeg, mag start na kami mag pa ppd test. im praying and hoping na gumaling si baby. tingin ko talaga, she has primary complex. i resigned from work para mabantayan ang two kids ko. feeling ko tuloy, nagkulang ako sa bunso ko 🙁 salamat kasi nabasa ko ang blog mo at nakakuha pa ako ng maraming tips.
March 26, 2017 at 8:20 pm

Hi Mommy, thank you for your article..for a couple of weeks now, I’ve been worrying for my 20months old daughter. We brought her to a pedia due to her fever, cough and runny nose. Her pedia suggested for cheat x ray since I told her that my daughter is always having runny nose and cough for almost every month. So, in order to rule out tubercolosis she suggested for a chest xray. After, we got the result, I can’t believe my eyes while reading the diagnosis. Pneumonia and to consider Koch’s infection. I was wondering where and from whom she acquired such an illness since no member in my family has such illness. And I, as a mother and a nurse by profession is so obsessed with cleanliness when it comes to my kids. We came back to our pedia with the results and she prescribed antibiotics for her and ordered a repeat x ray after week. After a week, the chest xray showed the same results. Tomorrow, we will visit her pedia for her PPD test. Whatever the outcome might be…I am trying to be strong and positive since I know that tubercolosis is a curable disease. But as a mother, I feel so devastated and often asks myself when/where did I go wrong in taking care of my kid. Since I have been breastfeeding her since birth until now. Then, I happened to read your article and I felt relieved and hopeful that I will get through this situation in time. Thank you so much for sharing. More power and God bless.

November 7, 2017 at 8:41 pm
My son is 3 years and 7 months, just today his ped confirmed that he has a weak lungs. I am super stress about the news I heard from my mom. I’m actually working abroad and it so frustrating and alarming knowing that he is too young to have it. As per the doctor because of his on and off cough and cold his lungs became weak. When he was 3 moths his doctor diagnosed with Atopic Dermatitis and Skin Asthma. We had the hard time looking for the best skin care for him until we noticed that if not on his skin he will have cough or cold which it will stop for few weeks but then again it will re current. We even rushed him to the emergency here abroad when he had his first asthma attacked. We were about to sleep when he complained of difficulty breathing and chest pain. Doctors here said that it is because of his skin asthma. So when they went back home my mom brought him back to his peds for consultation and again she can’t find anything. Till last 5 days ago she did some test which I didn’t know what was is but as per my mom doctor injected something to him and she was advised then to wait till 48 hours if there’s a reaction on the skin it means that the lungs is weak. So they’ve waited and when they returned to his peds today she confirmed it.
it’s too difficult for me to accept it as I am blaming myself because I’m not with him all the time. It’s a plan already to stay with me early next year here but now I’m so confused as he is on medication for 6 months. thank you for the info at least I have peace of mind.
