Eczema and Inflammatory Skin Diseases
Our claims agents commonly handle claims on behalf of military veterans suffering from eczema. The term eczema actually applies to a broad range of chronic skin disorders that involves inflammation of the epidermis. Eczema sufferers often experience scaly and itchy rashes, characterized by itching, cracking, oozing or bleeding.
Military veterans who suffer from eczema are often treated with drugs, like high-strength steroids and drugs acting on the immune system, which may have certain side effects.
Psoriasis is a long-term skin problem that causes skin cells to grow too quickly. Instead of taking weeks to reach the surface of the skin, new cells take only days, which results in thick, white, silvery or red patches of skin.
Experts believe that psoriasis is caused by overreaction of the immune system, causing inflammation and flaking skin.
Many veterans are eligible for service-connected compensation for scars related to injuries or illnesses sustained during military service. The percentage rating relates to the placement and size of the scar.
Don't Let the Government Push You Around
Skin diseases can have a serious effect on your life, so seeking the government benefits you deserve is important. Don't let the government push you around. Many vets call a lawyer or an advocate for help. Let the VA-accredited claims agents at The Rep For Vets® get you the benefits to which you are entitled.
