‘Skin dermatitis’ on Medical forms

Status
Not open for further replies.
Alright Chaps,

Filled out the medical forms with the GP today to be sent off. The one and only thing that was put on my form was about me coming to the docs once 2 years ago about dry, cracked skin on my hands. It happened only once, cleared up immediately and nothing like since - the doc wrote this pretty much on the forms , but it’s still on there. The doc said it wasn’t eczema or ‘occupational dermatitis’ (the two disqualify conditions which are on the forms), but put it down as ‘skin dermatitis’. Do you guys reckon my application to join the AR is screwed? Hoping because it was an isolated case, not a chronic issue, and that it’s not eczema or occupational dermatitis that it will be okay. Pretty bummed as I work in a laboratory and so I need to wash my hands constantly - and this was a result of that. No body I know in my work doesn’t have to take care of their hands to not get ‘skin dermatitis’.

Hi Mate, have you had a result on your appeal yet? I’ve just been rejected for eczema which I had 8 years ago when I was 8! I’m going to appeal but feeling gutted at the moment. Hope you get a good outcome.

Received good news the other day my appeal was UPHELD until June that’s when I’ll be 3 years without medication of steroid creams, got to redo my application then bit of a ball ache but it’s good news I suppose,have you heard back off them yet pal?

Really Good news. Good outcome.
I’m just waiting for the doctor to write my letter to send off with my appeal, I’ll let you know the outcome. My only concern is that my medical records show that on a one off occasion eczema was on my hands 8 years ago. I don’t even remember that. Fingers crossed.

Fingers crossed for ya pal,what you thinking of doing in then army?
Alright mate, just had my appeal rejected because it says in my notes there was a one off rash on my hand. Going to appeal again, just out of interest, was your eczema on your hands at all?

Was wondering if anyone had heard anything about there appeal. Was rejected on medical triage because I had eczema when I was younger had occlusive dressing and specialist treatment. Have been clear for about 7 years. I appealed this and was rejected but I’m allowed to appeal again. Wasn’t sure why else to say to convince them that I don’t ever have any symptoms.

Any update on this? I had the same issue back in 2017. Gonna give it another shot this year. Was thinking about getting some skin tests as proof.
