For the skin test, a small amount of testing material is placed just below the top layers of skin, usually on the arm. Two or three days later, a certified health care worker examines the arm to see if a bump has developed. If the bump is a certain size, the test is positive and the person has a TB infection. A chest x-ray is then needed to check the lungs.
