    Hello,

    I was awarded a full NROTC scholarship to the University of Illinois back in december and I found out today that DoDMERB changed my status to remedial due to a past history of eczema that has not recurred for many years. Although it has not shown up for many years, even if it were to show up again it would in no way affect my ability to do my duties as a Naval officer. When I send all of my medical records to the DoDMERB should I also have my dermatologist write me a letter stating that I have not had a problem for years and it will not affect my performance? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Iceman, click on the DoDMERB forum, and get Larry Mullen's email, and he will respond within 24 hours, many times within a few hours. He is the Deputy Director of DoDMERB, so you can bank on the info.

    similar thing happened to me with eczema but with USNA. I sent a letter from the doctor who initially diagnosed me along with my records. DoDMERB later asked for a remedial through one of their people in which I was deemed clear and I now have an appointment to USNA. If you don't still have eczema, and it was never severe, I don't see why it should be an issue. Follow up with the DoDMERB contact though.
