Mantoux /ppd test is done to know TB. If the results are 5 mm or more then it is positive. It means nothing but about presence or absence of TB. It also tells about HIV.

Hi christe,

If you had a TB test (the prick on the inside of the forearm) and it did not turn red (no reaction), it means you do not have TB; it doesn't mean anything else. (To my knowledge a TB test does not indicate whether or not HIV is present.)

Be happy!
