How long does a TB test take?

The skin test reaction should be read between 48 and 72 hours after administration by a health care worker trained to read TST results.

A patient who does not return within 72 hours will need to be rescheduled for another skin test. The reaction should be measured in millimeters of the induration (firm swelling).
