would you happen to know please, if there are any circumstances which would PREVENT someone from RE-APPLYING FOR ESA ?

Applying for ESA, no; being eligible, yes!

For Income Related ESA, you need to meet the associated means test.

For Contribution Based ESA, you need to meet the NI contribution and the NI Contribution and/or NI Credit tests, if you are claiming again after having your ESA(CB) time limited, then the NICs used for the new claim must be newer than those used for any previous claim.

I believe that one also has to wait or 6 months after a claim being disallowed, unless one has new medical conditions.

Actually you can make a claim within six months, although the DWP will often deny this, but you won't be paid until you pass a WCA assessment or the six months have passed, whichever is sooner.

So for many needing to re-claim in these circumstances, it is simpler just to treat it as six months before they can re-apply.

Or if there has been a significant deterioration in an existing condition.

The word "significant" in the context of the WCA is entirely subjective opinion, and therefore it will be the opinion of the approved disability analyst by means of a fresh medical assessment which will be required by the ESA decision maker, who is of course supposed to take into account the totality of any other relevant evidence pertinent to the WCA.
