I have a son (9th grade) who has expressed interest in the military academies. He has allergies to dust mites, certain grasses and cats. When he was younger he did shots, but hasn't had them for 2-3 years. He now controls the allergies with allegra and flonase. His only symptom is nasal congestion. (We live in a valley which is suppose to be one of the worst areas for allergies. When we visit other areas his allergies don't bother him at all). Would this be a disqualification to attending the academies? Thanks.
