The TB skin test is conducted by injecting a small amount of tuberculin, a fluid, into the skin on the lower part of the arm. After taking the tuberculin skin test, the person must return within 48 to 72 hours to have a trained healthcare worker look at the arm for a reaction.
Health care personnel exposed to TB disease should receive a TB symptom screen and timely testing. The personnel with a negative TB test result should be tested immediately and re-tested 8-10 weeks after the last known exposure.
If a bump of a certain size forms where the fluid was injected, the test is “positive,” meaning you probably have TB germs in your body. Mostly positive TB skin test is an indicator of a latent TB infection. A chest x-ray is then conducted to be sure.
