Acne in the past but all gone. Will this stop me from joining the navy

Hello all, I had acne in the past went to the local GP and got prescribed cream and tablets from the doctor. The acne doesn’t exist anymore which is a relief! Will having a run in with the doctors for acne stop me from joining the Royal Navy !?

No qualified docs on here, that's a question for your recruiter it has been stated you have to be 3 years clear of last treatment, no idea if that applies to skin conditions? Give your recruiter aa call or if close pay them a visit.
Thanks very much sumo, I’ll pay them a visit when I apply in a few months it’s been 4 years so I’ll jusr keep my fingers crossed


If you were ever on roaccutane or anything like that (the extreme acne medication) then they will ask for extra information from your GP, just a heads up. It would most likely delay your application but otherwise you should be OK
