My son had a TB test at 12 months. He has had no vaccinations. After the test (several hours) he cried for 2 hours and had bowel discomfort for several weeks. Has anyone encountered this. He is 4 now and I am wondering how the TB test can effect you?<br>

It might have been a coincidence- maybe he picked up some kind of intestinal virus at the dr's office?

that is what i thought, but his stomach really hasn't been the same since? And that was 3 years ago. he has a really hard time with different foods and digestion.

I tried the following search terms on PubMed and turned up 53 articles. Many of the reactions were skin problems. I didn't spot anything that sounded like a digestive reaction, but I didn't read through all the abstracts either. Here is the PubMed address if you want to try the search yourself: <a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi" target="_blank">http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi</a><br><br>
"Tuberculin Test/adverse effects"[MeSH]<br><br>
