I have a tiny bit of acne on my forehead. Probably less than even Ethan Hawkes has:

you'd sort of have to get close to me to even notice it since it's not red, just the color of my skin. I've never had it treated, although I've used some clearasil on it. i've never had or used any prescription medicine for my acne, it just has never been that bad.

on the DODMERB medical history form, question #59 is about "Skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, hand or foot rashes, eczema, or dry skin". Is this for major conditions i've gone to a doctor to deal with? or should even a few self-diagnosed pimples be reported and then discussed in the detail section?

(I just don't want to misinterpret what these questions are about. i don't want to mark yes for this if it is only when doctors have diagnosed stuff, but on the other hand, i don't want to mark "no" and then when i go to the concorde doctor next week, have her point at my forehead and say aha! a liar! you have 3 acne pimples right there! LOL.)

(i did a search on acne on this forum, but only found cases discussed where people had doctor prescribed drugs like accutane being used.)

On the DD Form 2492 it would be appropriate to mention that you have mild acne, but it has never been treated by a physician. It will not be an issue with DoDMERB.
