Health Remedies - Scrofula

Product Categories

Scrofula is a tuberculous infection in adults affecting the lymph nodes of the neck caused by infection with mycobacterium tuberculosis. It may occur in children due to infection by nontuberculous mycobacteria. The usual symptom is the appearance of a chronic, painless mass in the neck, which is persistent and usually grows with time. It may be accompanied by other symptoms of tuberculosis, such as fever, chills, malaise and weight loss. As the lesion progresses, skin becomes adhered to the neck mass and may rupture, forming a sinus and an open wound, which is the commonest long-term complication of scrofula.
