    I had one bout of what my doctor called eczema when I was 12, with minor patches in 3 places; it was treated with an over-the-counter cream and went away, and has not come back since. Knowing that most known eczema cases are a recurring problem, will I have to appeal this one-time issue, and if so how likely is a waiver?

    Eczema is likely a DQ from DoDMERB. They may request a remedial if it really was only a ontime event. If you are deemed competitive by the SA then they will request a waiver. I would advise gathering all of the relevent medical records and get ready to supply to DoDMERB. Good luck

    The other thing to do might be to challenge the original diagnosis... if, in fact, it was the diagnoses. Certainly doesn't sound like eczema to me, but I don't even play a doctor on TV.

    Thank you for the suggestion, I might see if that could be the case if it is a problem. I don't for sure know who the doctor was, and the one I think it is has passed away, but might his office (still my current doctor's office) be able to speak on that? Especially if what you're saying is true, that it doesn't even sound like eczema. Again, on my records, there is one mention of eczema, in a single note in one report, and it has never reappeared. :/ I really just hope this doesn't ruin things.
