I took my 3yo daughter in for her first PPD yesterday (about 26 hours ago). Today the incoulation site is very red and swollen (about 15mm). I know it is 48-72 hours before results should be interpreted but I was wondering if this could be a positive test or if it could be irritation from the injection? She keeps telling me that it hurts.
I just had my ppd 2 months ago and it came back neg. not sure if my husband has ever had one (he was born and grew up in Korea). We livein Alaska where there is a higher occurance of Tb than in the lower 48.
The medical side of me (MA and EMT) knows that I should just wait until monday but the mom side of me is worried. I guess I am just looking for reassurance. Feel free to tell me that I am totally overreacting!
Thanks for your comments. (also posted this on the pediatric board)
