I received a ppd test today i'm allergic to them so it is red raise and itchy. but i'm also very nauseous and am having loose stool and my stomach is churning. is that normal or should i be worried?

Anxiety: You are probably reacting to the adjuvant in the ppd. It will be a lot easier if your doctor just orders a Quantiferon (a gamma interferon assay) for tuberculosis. Its the gold standard.
