What is a PPD skin test?
A PPD skin test is a way to determine if you have been exposed to TB bacteria. A small amount of PPD tuberculin is injected just under the skin of your forearm. After 48-72 hours, a healthcare provider will check the injection site for a reaction.
What if I have a positive PPD skin test?
A positive PPD skin test does not necessarily mean you have active TB disease. Further testing, such as a chest x-ray, may be needed to determine if you have TB infection or disease.
Can I get a PPD skin test if I am pregnant?
Yes, a PPD skin test is safe to get during pregnancy.
