Our Tuberculosis Skin Test (PPD) is a simple and affordable way to detect TB infection early. During the test, a small amount of purified protein derivative (PPD) is injected just under the skin on your forearm. You will need to return to our clinic within 48-72 hours to have the test read. If the area around the injection site is red and swollen, it is considered a positive result, indicating TB infection. If the area is not swollen, it is considered negative. If your PPD test is positive, we will conduct further testing to confirm the diagnosis and determine if TB treatment is necessary. Early detection is important to prevent the spread of TB to others and to begin treatment promptly. The PPD skin test is recommended for individuals who may have been exposed to TB, including healthcare workers, those in congregate settings, and people who have traveled to countries with high TB rates. The test is also required for school and employment in certain fields. Our healthcare providers are trained to administer and read the PPD test accurately, and we ensure that our testing equipment is up to date and calibrated regularly. If you think you may have been exposed to TB, don't delay in getting tested. Contact us today to schedule your PPD skin test and ensure your peace of mind.
