    Nurse said that I have negative for TB skin test, but.....
    azncamgurl posted:
    I've been looking online for results of what a positive and a negative results look like and most of them said that it is positive when the skin is red and have a bump from 5mm to 15mm. I have that. The nurse said that it can just be a reaction. I still feel weird that it is a negative when I havethis bump in my arm. Here. This is what it looks like. Do you think that it is JUST a reaction? or there is something more to that?

    By the way, I am only 16 years old. I took the skin test because I want to volunteer in the summer and they require me to take it.
