Would model agencies choose someone who has eczema?

Home More advice Jobs & Money

Hi, I'm 15 years old, and my biggest passion modeling. It's my absolute dream and it has been since I was very young. Now I've decided I really want to start pursuing this dream and start making this dream come true. I'm 5'9, 125 pounds, so I think I meet the measurements just about, but theres just one thing standing between myself and my dream: I have eczema. Eczema is a skin problem, kind of like a bad rash. I've had it since I was 4 months old and I've suffered because of it. Now, its gotten so much better compared to how it was just 2 years ago. I feel like its restricting me to accomplish this dream, but I really refuse to give it up. If I try, do you think I would even be considered? Or is that a definite No-No in the fashion world? Just gimme the cold hard truth, if thats what it is..
