Answer

Antibiotics, Other

Antimicrobials with activity against mycobacteria may be used

Dapsone

Dapsone is bactericidal and bacteriostatic against mycobacteria. Its mechanism of action is similar to that of sulfonamides, ie, it is a competitive antagonist of PABA, preventing the formation of folic acid and inhibiting bacterial growth.
