    Hello,
    I have been researching the age DQ for eczema (skin rash) and have been receiving two distinct answers. The USCGA website has stated under the age of 9 while the DoDMERB says 12. Based on website updates, I am assuming under the age of 12 has been a more recent change. Could the different branches have different standards? Also, has anyone had an experience obtaining a waiver for this issue? If so, what is the age cutoff? I only say this because around 9 years old I had mild skin irritation on my feet that my doctor diagnosed as eczema. I just wanted to be aware if this is something I have to worry about for passing the DoDMERB.

    All are evaluated on a case by case basis.

    Many things are waiverable. Only the academies can ask for waivers for DQing conditions. A lot will depend up medicines taken, the age they were taken, and their opinion of the probability of a recurrence.
