    What are you basing your opinion on - because you are not correct.


    Minocycline per se is not a problem, but the important aspect is where the acne is, and would military clothing (including respirators etc) make it worse. Whether you pass the medical or not will depend on this.

  5. As long as it isn't too bad then you should be ok. Hard to say without actually seeing it.

    Just be aware that there are some pretty caustic substances on board warships (notably fuel) and skin conditions can get worse.
     
  6. Good point, I'm not 100% sure on what Minorcycling is to be honest.

    I may have misunderstood, I thought he was concerned about the drug testing.

    Mind you, I've seen some lads with serious skin afflictions, in the showers in a totally hetero manly way.

    It's good there's some professionals on here to set the record straight.
     
  7. Isn't it just?
