Testing question, please answer asap anybody?

    Recommended Posts

    My question is: can you get a very small, slightly raised and bumpy, red painful 'mark' swabbed at a gum clinic if it's not a fluid filled blister? Like can they just scrape the skin?!

    Don't want to wait hours at the walk in clinic in the morning if it has to be a fluid filled lesion.

    I believe to get a decent sample, enough fluid needs to be present.
