Can people with eczema be blood donors?

  1. Eczema is not listed under the conditions that would prevent someone from donating blood, however, those with skin disease that has become infected over the vein where blood is drawn should wait for the infection to go away before donating (since the needle needs to enter the skin to draw blood).

    There's more information about blood donor criteria here if you're interested: http://rdcrss.org/1es7Uw9. Hope this helps!
