Welcome to presume 48 hours is over by now.What are the readings now??The person's medical risk factors determine at which increment (5 mm, 10 mm, or 15 mm) of induration the result is considered positive. A positive result indicates TB exposure.If positive you will have to take anti tb drugs for a minimum of 6 months-combination will be decided by your physician.Do not self medicate.Tb is totally curable.Take care.
