Difficult one...
JSP 346 (the one which defines the medical paremeters for entry into the Armed Forces) is slightly hazy, saying that if there is active eczema on the hands, it's a definate no-no. Also dependent on whether, and what, medication is being used to treat it.
But some doctors do... "overlook" certain cases.

I was overseeing the medical examinations for entry to our Unit this year, and still have a copy of the JSP kicking around. I can PM you the exact paragraph if you want.

Regards,
Macks
