How to get disability for eczema?
The Social Security Administration has a "Listing of Impairments" that you can review on their website, but I can tell you that one of the categories skin disorders, and eczema is on the list. However, this listing contains hundreds and hundreds of illnesses and disabilities, and having your particular disability listed does not guarantee that you will be successful if you apply for disability benefits. For more information, follow this link to a post about how the SSA evaluates illnesses and conditions and determines eligibility for disability benefits. Good luck, and I hope you feel better.
You're not likely to get any sort of disability consideration for eczema, unless you can prove that the rashes have limited your function in some significant way.
