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!
