    Not a doc. But if its just an allergic reaction to something and its not causing him difficulty in his working ability he should be ok. But i would check it out just in case. Dont want to have a rash and be living in a truck for weeks on end

    I doubt they did a TB test so I would say he is fine...get some stuff from local pharm which hubby can show him the break out and he will tell him exactly what to buy

    I did the physical with Central at their West Valley City, UT location in 2013. I don't take any medications or have any reportable medical history, so maybe it was a breeze based on that alone... but I kind of found the physical they did to be quite laughable.

    I was in the room for a maybe a couple of minutes and was given a two year card. I am overweight, but don't have high blood pressure. I don't know if its changed but I don't think a rash on the ankles is anything to be worried about.

    No, they don't check you out there. He will be fine. If your around Iowa80 in Walcott, IA have the doc there do the medical.

    There is no area on the Medical Certification form for you or the Physician to check off on "Rash".

    There is a space on the form where the condition of the skin is checked under "general appearance". An allergic reaction causing a rash is far from disqualifying. Although if he is allergic to things he may be coming in contact with through his work such as latex (a common one), it is worth noting.
