When I went to meps to swear in, they could not get a good scan of my fingerprints because my hands were all messed up from working as a dishwasher. They told me it was no big deal at the time and told me to just make sure I come back sometime before I ship to rescan them. I ship in the end of July, and my hands have not gotten better despite me quitting my job over two months ago. The problem is, I was diagnosed with eczema and totally forgot to mention it during my time at meps. I saw a doctor last summer when I first noticed my hands cracking and peeling and took some steroid creme which cleared it up pretty good. I quit using it about two months prior to enlisting. I have been researching and have found that eczema is a potential dq. With that said I have two questions. First, can I still ship even if they are unable to get a successful scan of my fingerprints? Second, what are the potential consequences I could face if they find out I have eczema? Thanks in advance to anyone who has any information on this subject.
