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?

You need to check this with your healthcare provider if you are concerned. Members cannot offer this type of medical advice.
