    I went to the doctor and discovered I had mild psoriasis on my neck, she prescribed a cortisone cream/gel and it is now completely gone without any recurrence after 1 month. Would this completely disqualify me? Is Psoriasis waiverable, and does anyone know where I can find a list of medical conditions that disqualify a candidate from attending the service academies?

    Thanks a bunch

    I don't think there is a list. The doctors that review your case for waiver will decide whether or not it will prohibit you from performing your duty. It's really on a case by case basis, someone may be disqualified for something that someone else is not.

    I suggest you follow up with Larry Mullen, Deputy Director of DODMERB. His contact info is in a sticky on the DODMERB board. He can and will help you.
