Tuberculin Skin Test in Pune

The Tuberculin Skin Test (TST) is also known as the Mantoux Test. It is a skin test to detect if you have been infected with TB bacteria.

The TST is done:

  • To find latent TB in a person who may have been exposed to someone diagnosed with active TB.
  • To check if a person has latent TB infection before they start work at a health care facility.
  • To check if a person has latent TB before they travel to a region where there are high rates of TB.
  • Before the BCG vaccination is given to babies over 6 months of.
What are the possible side effects?2022-12-07T06:22:35+00:00

The TST is a simple and safe test and side effects are uncommon. The side effects are mainly related to the size of the reaction and include swelling, redness and itchiness that may take a few weeks to clear.Very strong reactions are uncommon but may result in a painful swelling of several centimetres in size, blistering or ulceration. This will heal with almost no scarring. The effects of the TST are localised to the site and more general reactions are extremely rare.

How long does skin stay red after TB test?2022-12-07T06:22:57+00:00

A positive reaction usually remains visible for about 1 week. A positive tuberculin skin test does not mean you have a contagious (active) infection. The test cannot tell if the infection is active or inactive (latent TB). It also cannot tell the difference between a TB infection and a TB vaccination (BCG vaccination).

What does a positive Tuberculous Skin Test mean?2022-10-22T04:34:03+00:00

A positive TST result indicates that an individual may have latent TB infection. People with latent TB infection are not contagious and cannot spread TB infection to others. The purpose of TST among health care students and employees is to ensure that individuals receive appropriate testing and treatment for TB disease, and individuals who are exposed to a patient with infectious TB receive the correct follow-up testing for TB.
