    I recently had my physical examination and the doctor was a bit confused by two rashes that I developed almost a year ago. The only issue I have had with this rash on my shin is that I'm not rocking my shorts as much anymore. The other rash is on my lower back and it's going away with a antifungal cream my dermatologist prescribed. The weird thing is I've been to two different dermatologist and both do not have a clue about what it is. :confused: Would this be something that would disqualify me from getting into USNA? Thanks

    It depends entirely on what the diagnosis from your doctor was. The point of DODMERB is to determine wether or not you are fit to serve in the military. If the condition was treated with no lasting effects on you, and was completely cured, you should be fine. I can't really tell but by your post are you saying that you have had these two rashes for almost a year now?

    Yeah, almost a year now. It hasn't improved any in my opinion and my dermatologist does not know exactly what it is so I really don't have a diagnosis unfortunately.
