Rejected for Eczema over 25 years ago??

Buxton

Hi, I've just had a letter from the medical wing rejecting my application due to seeing a specialist as a child for ezcema, and it was just to confirm I was in the clear.
I've not had any issues since and am now 33.

Is there any way or chance of appeal that will be successful?
 
Can't speak for the regulars, but plenty of TA have eczema. Even guys with 12 fingers. You'll fit right in

You must appeal. The current 'computer says no to distant medical issues' is a bit of a drama.

Weirdly I had it as a kid which the medical didn't pick up and I had it come back really badly on my legs during my first Op Banner tour, our MO was great about it and the med Sgt was excellent with advice and zinc crème I think. Mind you that was 1983 and it didn't come back apart from a tiny rash whilst stood at the altar. Maybe I should have done a runner!

Keeping it clean was difficult, so hot then like now and so little time to shower and get changed. I remember one week where I couldn't take of more than one boot at a time.
 
If you go to this topic
Medical Queries

You will get the blessing of the Mods and enter eczema in search thread box. Been discussed loads of times with some good (and some "hilarious" -well, it is Arrse) advice. You can also put in deferred in the same box and get answers on that as well including making appeals.
 
Its a shame you were not from some country that people are very susceptible to cold weather injuries.....your let right in with no questions asked!
