    I haven't found anything indicating that an egg allergy would be a contraindication for a Mantoux test.  According to the CDC, the only contraindication is for persons who have had a severe reaction (e.g., necrosis, blistering, anaphylactic shock, or
    ulcerations) to a previous tuberculin test.
