I went on DoDMERB this morning and noticed for USMA that I “Did not meet medical standards.” There is not DQ code, but based off of the remedials I would assume it was cystic acne. It went away a while ago.
Does anyone know if this is waiverable?
Chronic diseases such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and eczema are disqualifying. Severe acne is disqualifying until successfully treated. If a course of Accutane is undertaken, this should be completed, with documentation of a favorable outcome six weeks prior to Induction Day. Pilonidal cyst, if evidenced by a discharging mass, is disqualifying until repaired successfully.
I did not do accutane, but we switch treatments and it started to go away. Today there are only a few spots where there is still cystic acne but it is practically gone and does not cause any discomfort (One of my remedials even was about discomfort and I replied that there was never discomfort with my acne). Why is this a problem?
