    When my son was 6 years old he was stung by a bee and broke out in hives. Since then he was stung once more and was immediately treated with an epi pen by an over zealous coach. He had no reaction either before or after the epi pen. A few years ago, we decided to be safe and have him start immunotherapy. He is currently in year 2 and is on maintenance treatment. He was DQ'ed by DODMERB and is currently in the waiver process. Is there anything that we can do to help generate a positive decision? Should we have him retested for the allergy? He received a Principal nomination from our Congressman to USNA and is highly competitive which I understand means that if he qualifies, he is IN. What are his chances of getting a waiver?

    Bee sting waiver

    When I was in AFROTC I went to a allergy specialist and took desensitization shots. After reaching my max dosage ( about a month) the doctor wrote me a letter and I submited it to dobmerb and got a waiver and was granted permission to contract! I continued to take the shot for 2 years while maintains the dosage and don't have any problems with stings now.
