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.
