User avatar Hello,
Tuberculosis should be treated in pregnancy if it is active. The initial treatment is isoniazid (INH), rifampin (RIF), and ethambutol (EMB) with Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6). It is not recommended that a pregnant woman take pyrazinamide (PZA) because we do not have enough information about this drug in pregnancy. As far as I know the cold abscess does not change the treatment here.

Best wishes.
