I am new to forums so please bear with me. I would like to ask someone about a medical DQ which my son received from DoDMERB for allergy shots. He is applying to USMA and I am in a panic. Please advise. I am confused about the shots being an issue. He has never had any chronic allergy symptoms but just one incident last summer. We visited the doctor and he was tested for food allergies and pollen, molds, etc. No food allergies and just a few trees and grasses, some dust. He was prescribed some medication which he took for a day or two! He is incredibly healthy and the doctor was probably taking a conservative approach, but honestly, if it weren't for me making his appointments for the shots, he would never go. He doesn't show any signs or symptoms for even needing them. I've thought about discontinuing them altogether. But when we filled out the questionaire, of course, we were completely honest. Now he has been DQed for AITand he is a strong, vibrant picture of health. He is very athletic and in no way dependent of the shots in order to participate in a rigorous fitness program.
