Our doctors in the country just label everything.
Parents have a lot to do with this. A lot of parents demand treatment for every cold or cough a kid gets time and rest are all that is needed. For the doctor to prescribe an inhaler or antibiotic the doctor needs to diagnosis the ailment as something that will allow him/her to prescribe the inhaler or antibiotic.

With the new regulations regarding eczema in 2017 do you see recruits getting approved for waivers from af sg ?this has been a 6 month battle for me, waivers were sent on the 6 of December. Initially I had a flare up in early 2016 while researching about the Air Force stance on eczema i decided not to even attempt to join . I saw the new regulations and was happy about that . Long story short my paperwork just got moved through meps after having to wait what feels like an eternity to sent to sg .the last thing I had to get meps was an official diagnosis from dermatologist before the sent my file off to the sg.the appointment with the dermatologist revealed that I had no signs of eczema and the reason I was told to go to her in the first place was to see if I had atopic dermatitis or actual eczema .does all this sound like a fighting chance of getting approved ?i also have high astigmatism over the 3.00 standards ( from most recent eye exam early ‘17 put me at -3.25 and -2.75 from civilian opthamalogist ) and no signs of any eye diseases from topography exam. From your experience do you think my waivers will get approved , if it means anything I scored high enough for the most in demand jobs in the electrical department.

Your astigmatism shouldn't be a problem. I've had 1 eczema waiver disapproved, and one approved in the last month. I have no idea what the difference was, but the one that was approved had more recent eczema so I was confused. Good luck!
