Go to ofc/clinic: You need an rn or dr or paramedic or other qualified public healthcare worker to place test, and then have you return in 48-72 hrs to read test. A small needle is used to place purified protein derivative (PPD) just under skin (makes a wheal) & then is examined for any reaction in 2-3 days.
