Tuberculin diagnostics should be postponed if there are: fever, cough, runny nose, exacerbation of chronic ailments, symptoms of skin diseases, digestive disorders or neurological diseases.

Answer 2
October, 2020

Past diseases can affect the sensitivity of the child's skin during the Mantoux test, thereby increasing or weakening the response to the injected tuberculin. Therefore, the Mantoux test in this case is postponed to a later date.
Medical contraindications for the Mantoux test include: any disease in the acute stage, as well as with individual intolerance.
