It can be rated under the new regs for skin conditions, provided you have evidence of occurrence in service and a nexus opinion connecting whatever you have today was what you had in service for direct service connection; or, for secondary service connectde, if it is due to meds yyou take for direct service connected disailities.

Yes, the picture in the attachment illustrate my condition. I don't know how I got it and how to keep it from continueing to invade my body. I've taken four types of creams and lotions to help relieve the problem but these things get popping up.

Not stated in this link, but their may be a link to this type of skin affliction by those taking certain drugs, Some drugs have wornings about sun exposure, although they usually don't specify what damage may occur.

I am a middle age male and have the same problem, Mine on the other hand may be associated with an autoimmune disease, that increases in effect when I spend to much time in direct sun light. I'm supposed to cover up and use a certain type of sunglasses to limit my exposure through my eyes.

It may be hard to prove SC unless you can show some link to a disease or as a resort of a non natural exposure event.

I wish you good luck
