After Tuberculosis medication

I heard that even after the 9 months of medication I've taken, I would still have TB positive skin tests. I know that some jobs and schools require this test, has anyone had the same situation as I before?

Re: After Tuberculosis medication

You will have positive skin tests for the rest of your life, but so do many thousands of other people who have never had TB.

If it's ever an issue, you'll just get a chest x-ray or exam to prove that you don't currently have TB.

How are you feeling? Did the antibiotics work?
