RAF- Eczema

#1
hello, serious advice please because i really need help.
I applied for the army when i was 17 and got a 3 year deferral for borderline eczema, i've just decided to go for the RAF regiment and i know that you have to be clear of any symptoms for 2-3 years. But i have been to the doctors within those years for my eczema but purely because i am allergic to dogs!. i met my partner 2 and half years ago and i had absolutely no eczema but then i found out she has dogs and every time i've gone there i touch the dogs then itch then need to go doctors for steroid cream and it clears up within two days.
but the point im getting down to is my eczema only occurs when i have physical contact with dogs, when i am not in contact with dogs i have no dry skin or nothing just normal. so would i be able to get away with telling them that the times i've been to the doctors is because of my allergies towards dogs? i've done weeks at army bases on my college course and had no problems with the face paint and environmental stuff like mud,cold, hot ect. i just don't want to be defeated by mild eczema which only occurs when i touch dogs and only takes two days to get rid with steroid cream when it does occur. i can also get a doctors note to say its not chronic and dog allergen prone.

Thank you peoples!

Tim? You don't stalk me like you used to. Is it something I have said?

Back on topic - avoid the RAF Regiment since they tend to have big snarly dogs. You might consider the RN since they do not. They mostly have goldfish. Or you might consider service with the Post Office. Postman Pat and his Black & White Cat have not brought anybody out in a rash for ages.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

No,

It's well known fact that you won't get in the RAF Regt unless you're drop dead gorgeous and look like some coke head off Towie. The RAF Regt don't 'do' skin diseases though they do 'do' dogs. And Munters. Regularly.

Why the fuck do people keep coming on this site and asking about RAF cunting recruiting? Even if the people on here knew what they were talking about they still wouldn't give a sensible answer.

Eloquently put.

I can see how people inconsiderately posting questions related to the RAF in the RAF Forum might cause you a problem.

The outrage bus will be along soon.

I have no real problem with people asking questions, my real point was that after reading the inane answers that come with every question, why do they bother? This is an Army forum and they may as well ask at the local cop shop what life in the RAF is like for all the use the drivel that's posted is.
