As the title says, I appreciate any information regarding MEPS regulations on skin conditions that cause hives, particularly CIU and environmental urticaria (such as cold-induced hives). I have sensitive skin (when I scratch my arm, it turns red pretty quickly (its not dermatographia)) and have been getting itchy hives for the past 9 months at random points throughout the day. Contact with water is a big trigger for me, and it seems like my skin is more sensitive after touching water and thus produces more hives. They are relatively mild (no large patches of hives, sections of raised skin, anaphylaxis, angioedema, just a small amount of sparse pimple-like hives in certain areas like legs, arms, and upper torso), and I can control the symptoms with an OTC second generation non-drowsy antihistamine. I talked with a dermatologist and took an allergy test which revealed I have zero food/environmental allergies, no eczema, dermatitis, etc. I was told I most likely just have sensitive skin and could be getting hives from just hormones, stress, or some other cause, and that it's very possible this condition resolves itself over time. From here, I would like to know if I can get into the Academies or enlist if this condition persists when I reach MEPS. I am a rising Junior in high school and really hoping my current dose of antihistamines and diet adjustments can make this go away soon, but if it doesn't, is it a wavier-able condition? Do I even need a wavier? I think I would, but I'm not sure because I can hardly find any information regarding hives and MEPS online. If anyone has any information or experience with something similar to this, I would appreciate it greatly, thank you!
