Hello,

mysticdoc :

What is your question regarding TB test?

Customer: my daughter was exposed to TB at childrens hospital. a girl she was treating (for mental illness) has been found to have tb. my daughter spent several days attending to this girl.
Customer: my daughter visited with me over the last couple of days. she is getting tested and she told me i should get tested as well. i thought i would wait until her results came in and she disagreed with me. what do you think?
mysticdoc :

Given the exposure to the TB, your daughter should be tested with PPD test and also the chest xrays.

mysticdoc :

Since you also came in contact with her, it is better for you also to get tested.

mysticdoc :

If the test comes back negative, this should be repeated again after 8 weeks.

mysticdoc :

This is the current recommendation.
