    Hi,

    I am applying for Mental Health Nursing to start in September. I am currently studying Access to Nursing.

    I am getting a bit worried about the Occupational Health Check. When I read around and seen that my anxiety shouldn't be a problem and neither will my eczema lol

    I am most worried about the fact that I haven't had chicken pox ever.....it wasn't through lack of trying when I was a kid. I think I am immune and I think my father was also. Anyone know if this will go against me?


    Thanks

    As long as your anxiety is stable or you re seeking support and your exczema free on your hands and wrists then you ve nothing to worry about they ll probably just give you the varicella jab

    They cannot tell you you can't have a place because you have eczema. I really wouldn't worry about it. I have dermatitis bad on my hands (constant hand washing at work) and they are always red, flaky and inflamed. No one has ever said a word and also I went to some training and mentioned it and she said maybe wear gloves when doing patient contact if you have flaky skin and keep on top on moisturising. If you can get it calm you don't even have to tell anyone

    Yeah, that's why I have it, from constant hand washing in my job as a Support Worker. I thought pretty much all patient contact would need me to wear gloves anyway so that's no problem lol

    Occupational health might be able to prescribe you a cream or a more skin condition friendly hand wash so that you dont aggravate it
