Hi I am a second year on-campus, non-scholarship, ROTC cadet and DODMERB DQ'd me a couple of months ago for having "a history of atopic dermatitis or eczema after 12th birthday." I misdiagnosed myself and rushed through the DODMERB questionnaire stating that I had a small case of eczema a month prior to my exam. I was automatically DQ'd with no request for remedial information for AMI and I was wondering what information may be best to send in to start the waiver process. My detachment cadre already agreed to vouch for me and request a waiver. But I am wondering what documentation would be most beneficial for me receiving a granted waiver. I have not had eczema since I was 12 and I have already scheduled a dermatologist appointment to get cleared. Any helpful tips/advice/experience would be great! Thank you.

When my DS was DQ'd this year, he was only asked to submit an explanation of it. He wasn't asked to see a dermatologist. He was never officially diagnosed with it, I just told the dr. I thought that is what is was 4 years ago and we got over the counter hydrocortisone that clears it up in 24 hours. He only gets a small patch on the bend of his arm during wrestling season which coincides with the dry winter season in Germany. The dr. couldn't even comment on it because it was completely clear during his Dodmerb exam which was in Sept. He was still DQ'd after his explanation and we are waiting for a waiver request. Good Luck with getting the waiver. I'm sure everything will work out!
