should a second mantoux test be given for someone who previously had negative results. Neither of us can figure where he may have been exposed to TB and he has not had any upper respiratory infections.
You should always write all your physical complaints along with investigations.
Mantoux is not a diagnostic test ...it only suggest the bodys immune response ....should never be repeated as1st neg followed by 2nd will always be positive ....dont interpret the result yourself ....go to a good physician & try to trust him
