Q.

Is it safe to use Flovent HFA inhaler if you are BCG vaccinated?

I was born and raised in Japan and was vaccinated with BCG (bacille Calmette-Guerin) 50 years ago. The warning for Flovent HFA says if you have TB or history of TB, you shouldn't be using it. I've never had a TB but my skin test may show positive due to the BCG. So I'm not sure how to interpret this warnings of Flovent HFA for my condition since I have live bacteria. Can I still use Flovent ? Thank you, BCG1
