I had a mantoux test done a week ago. Since then, there has been a red area around where the solution was injected. I had it checked 48 hrs after it was done and it was negative because there is no raised bump, just a little redness with very mild small bumps on it and the area covered by the rash is slightly less than that of a penny. I've had four done before with no reaction whatsoever, so I am concerned that I am experiencing the red rash. Anyone have advice on whether this is something to be concerned about?
