    West Point application - allergies/cough

    I am excited to be applying for West Point. My biggest worry is the Dodmerb Report of Medical History. I have been getting allergy shots for environmental sensitivities for about 4 years and should be able to stop those in the upcoming year. I rarely need any over the counter meds or anything...

    Past Medical History

    Possible Asthma DQ?

    So I have a question regarding a possible asthma and allergies DQ. When I was 6 years old until shortly after I turned 9 years old, I saw an allergy-immunologist who initially diagnosed me with allergic rhinitis and intrinsic asthma. During the ages mentioned, I was taking an inhaled steroid for...
