  • Will I need a waiver for psoriasis?

    I have been going back and forth on joining the military and trying my luck at becoming a SEAL for a few years now. I recently made the decision that after school (May 2018) I will begin the long journey of the pipeline. Recently I started to have a lot of flaking on my scalp (scalp rash) alongside redness. I have seen a few different doctors now and they all seem to think it is psoriasis. Question is can I join the military with psoriasis, and if so will I need to get a waiver?
