I was just wondering... I remember this long-lost Army friend who is excused uniform. He has some kind of skin condition which makes wearing Army uniform very uncomfortable. Sort of a rash or something. Anyone heard of this condition before?

The reason I'm asking is that I have a friend's brother who may have this similar condition. Dun know what it is, but the uniform makes him sweat much much more easily and the skin feels irritated. Other than this he is normal. Where should he seek help?

Thanks for any info or useful discussion. :)

Yes, I have heard of this condition - sometimes allergy to dye of the uniform or the material itself.

Heard of:
excuse dust
excuse walking
excuse sunlight

and others too :bsmilie:

Ask him to report sick and see the MO. Ask for referal to National Skin Centre.

Excuse uniform usually refers to excused No.4 uniform.

Where I have no comment on excuse walking.... It's no laughing matter to have a condition that warrants an 'excuse sunlight'. It could be anything from a simple skin condition that worsens with exposure to sunlight.... to serious diseases like SLE (a nervous system disorder - NOT the expressway hor!)

if he's hasnt enlisted yet, do a test. get him a set of uniform and make him wear it for a day. if no reaction breaks out, please see a dermatologist before enlistment. be sure to visit as many dermatologists as possible until you get the particular "letter" you are looking for :thumbsup:

my bmt platoon mate got the mother of all excuses...

"excuse as and when neccesary"

anyway, go to the MO and see if can get referred to skin center. If no referral, gotta pay abit more.
