I am not sure what to do. DS has had bouts of what we believe is atopic dermatitis/eczema on his wrists/lower arms off & on for years. He has not been treated for it since before he was 12, it is not severe, but it flares up from time to time. He is a Junior in HS and has wanted nothing else except a career as an officer in the military for as long as we can remember. He is very well qualified as far as grades and extra-cirricular activities and is looking to apply to pretty much everything: USNA, USAFA, USMMA, and USCGA as well as USNROTC & USAFROTC, & MC college programs. My question is, how do we proceed with the skin issue? Is it better to be treated or not treated for it? How do you go about finding a local specialist (dermotologist) that is familiar with the DoDMERB? It is hard to know how to proceed and what is the best course of action. We don't want to do the 'wrong thing'. I have searched this forum and it is discouraging to see that eczema appears to be one of the conditions that is very hard to get a waiver for. We aren't giving up at all, just looking for some guidance. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!
