In 2019 I applied for the navy but was rejected because I had eczema in 2017. I am now reapplying; the eczema was brought up by my career advisor.
My question is: is the deferral for eczema 3 or 5 years? Because there is conflicting information online.
I haven't had eczema since 2017 and I don't take medication/use any creams etc.
I've had my triage phone call and it didn't seem to be an issue but was mentioned briefly.

It used to be 4 years free of any medication but I'm not a doctor or recruiter so don't take that as gospel, this is an unofficial site after all.
