Hi, I am wanting to apply to the marines, in preparation for this I requested a copy of my medical records from my GP. I noted one visit that looks to be an issue. I went to the doctor due to dry cracked knuckles a little over 7 years ago when i was 14. The entry in my records reads as follows "Contact dermatitis and other eczemas, has infected eczema both hands, will moisturise also" I was prescribed Co-Amoxiclav tablets (an antibiotic i believe) and Betamethasone Velerate Ointment 0.1% (looks to be a common eczema cream), looking through I appear to only have gone once to the doctor though i did get a second prescription of the cream 2 and a half months later (for what its worth i'm not sure whether i ended up using it). Looking at the JSP950 contact dermatitis and eczema on hands both seem to be a straight right off to any chances of getting in. Thinking back the cause of it was my hands getting very dry at this time this caused them to start cracking and cheap soap etc just irritated the cracks further until I it was decided that I should see a doctor about it. Anyway my hands haven't gone like this since, sometimes they get a bit dry (like most peoples) but I don't need to moisturise let alone see a doctor about it and I haven't needed to avoid any substances (soaps etc). So my question is that though I have this on my record and am well aware that looking at JSP950 that I would fail the medical, is there a chance that considering it was an isolated incident several years ago that the medical examiner will take this into account and give me a pass for the medical? I just wanted to get a feel of what you all think my chances are / if any of you have has similar issues and if there is anything I can do to improve my chances?
