My mom tests positive for tb everytime she gets the test. She is a carrier, so she doesn't have it, just carries the germ. <br />
I hope this is helpful to you! Good Luck.
It could be the person who stuck you or an allergy to it or something else in the liquid. I had that happen one time it was gone by the time the read it and all negative. I think its common. Worst that happens is you get a chest x-ray to prove differently.
I wouldn't put too much stock in it. I've tested positive every time to the skin test since I was a kid. They always inevitably want a chest x-ray. It's some fluke in my genetics they can't explain.<br />
Don't worry too much. Medicine isn't perfect. :-)
See your doctor or give them a call if you are concerned.
I can so relate I work in a large company and I deal with people from all over the world. Some are here legally and some aren't. I have had several TB test over the years so far I haven't contracted the disease. Good luck and be glad it can be treated.
Never. Every time I go to jail I'm clean.
