Patient : Hi, I recently had a tb test done and had a pretty severe reaction they did a chest xray and it came back negative. The only problem is now the health department wants me to possibly go one long term medication. I dont know if I should request the QuantiFERON-TB test becasue I have severe allergies to many things. I also feel weird that they did not feel the need to test me again and alot of the swelling and itching went down after taking allergy meds.
