Way back in the day (last year) I had heady visions of joining up-
However, my doctor eagerly explained that I had had a topical rash occur occasionally for the past couple of years, but that they didn't know what it was. She also cleverly pointed out that I'd been sent to a Dermatologist, who couldn't diagnose me either...
Rah rah rah to cut a long one short, I 'got a thanks but no thanks' letter back from those interested in my medical state, becaue the skin rash was 'undisclosed'
it has to be a active skin condition, as in, the eczema has to be active at the time, the same applies to any other skin condition it describes, so long as your skin condition is not severe, you should still be considered, by the way i encountered the same problem on my application form, hope this was helpfull!!!
Bang on Chris. Life can be hard enough when you're 80k upstream from the ar$e end of nowhere, the humidity is no longer funny, you havent had a shower for ten days, the local fauna is determined to bite you on every inch of your pasty white body.............and then............. your eczema/psoriasis/dermatitis flares up!
If you're not built for the job, life is gonna be unbearable.
