Excema medication is usually a streriod cream! Hydrocortisone is a mild one which I currently use. Others for severe flare ups include Eumovate cream and Clobaderm. These contain the streriod clobetasone butyrate. Check your medication. If you have been given a streriod cream. Then from what @Ninja_Stoker is saying, then you need to be 3 years clear.Likewise prescribed eczema medication within the last three years will be an issue
Would it be counted as eczema medication if its for hard skin?
So I should be good with just moisteriser?Excema medication is usually a streriod cream! Hydrocortisone is a mild one which I currently use.

As long as they're now out (they usually fall out eventually), the tympanic membrane is intact and you pass the routine hearing test, you should be OK.I have grommets in my ears they were put there when I was very little. My hearing is fine now. Would this affect me joining the Royal Marines?
It should not affect eligibility to join the Corps, just avoid declaring incorrectly self-diagnosed conditionsSorry if this is in the wrong place. Just need a bit of help regarding migraines.
Recently had selection for the army and got deferred for a migraine (self diagonosed not on any medical records or needed treatment), however I appealed the decision with a letter from me saying I hadn't met the criteria according to the JSP 950, and a letter from my GP saying I'd never consulted him. And the appeal was successful and they're *text deleted* give me another selection date.
However, I've decided I want to join the marines again so I am going to pull my army application, I'm just wondering if it will affect my marine application or what I need to say and that. Thank you in advance and sorry if it's a bit wordy.
I don't think its really fair to ask somebody what "You" declare during a triage medical, but from the sound of the advice given?Ok, so when I do the questionaire and triage nurse call I shouldn't say anything about the migraines.

The Medical Examiner will invariably want to know the background to both issues, so you should declare them. You should advise your GP that you're joining-up and that Capita will require the details below and write to him/her shortly.I've seen my medical records and it says in 2013 that I have ADHD but then there is a letter 10 months later saying I don't meet the criteria or threshold for ASD or ADHD. What do I do and what does this mean? Also I went doctors because my achilles hurt after a cadet weekend and on my records it says achilles tendonitis due to military footwear. Surely this won't do me any favours?
Apologies for re-opening this thread but this is an odd one!
I'll cut to the chase and tell you that I was born with the heart condition Transposition of the great vessels (TGV). This was pretty much identified within half an hour of me being born and was fully corrected less than 2 days later.
My question is, despite it being corrected well over 16 years ago and having had no symptoms since (as well as a high level of fitness), would it be a potential bar to entry?
Again, sorry for jumping on the bandwagon but this condition is a bit of a grey area and I have struggled to find any information regarding entry standards.
