How does this affect my eligibility to join the Coast Guard?

    Hello everybody,
    This is my first time posting here, so here goes.

    I'm in high school and interested in joining the coast guard. I'm meeting with a recruiter next week.
    Last week, I developed a small patch of red skin on my inner elbow that looks like it could possibly be eczema. 
    The last time this happened was when I was like 7 and it always cleared up quickly and never grew very big. 
    The spot in question is about 1/2 to 1 inch in diameter and all it is is skin that is slightly dry and red. 

    Could this medically disqualify me, and if so, how easy would it be and could I get a waiver?
    Thank you all

    If a doctor hasn't told you that what you're experiencing is eczema, don't self diagnose. Eczema appears to be a disqualifier, so you don't want to tell your recruiter that you have it, if you're not certain. Your recruiter can apply for a waiver if it in fact is eczema, but no one here is going to have any idea whether or not it will be granted

    If no doctor has diagnosed it, then it isn't that. Don't mention it. You aren't lying, you aren't being dishonest. You have a patch of dry skin, nothing more. If a doctor says it is eczema then the rules changes.

    Do speeding tickets come up on security clearance background check?

    If you are a habitual speeder, yes. If you received 1 ticket and you've settled it, it happens to the best of us, nothing to worry about. But if you have an ongoing court battle, that's going to be an issue.
