Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone tell me if you can be medically deferred due to a fungal skin infection which has now cleared up and the gp said is not a recurring condition?
  2. So you haven't got the condition then...
  3. When did it clear up?
  4. I haven't got the condition anymore, no. I was just wondering if you have to be clear of treatment for a certain amount of time before they'll let you join? Or as it's not an active skin dissorder and wont recur would they let me join having had the infection?
  5. It only cleared up in the past few months. We think the cause of the infection was due to a course of antibiotics i'd had for an ear infection.
  6. Okay, and if you dont mind me asking - what was the infected area?
  7. On the top of my legs and a little bit on my back, but it's totally gone now.
