Extremely itchy inner ears, no wax but dry, flaky, and itchy!!

I've always had extremely itchy inner ears that have little or no wax. I don't get the swimmers ear, but sometimes they will get inflammed and senstive/sore inside. I have dry flaky skin/wax that I get out with q-tips. But sometimes I'll scratch at them so much that they'll get clear fluid drainage. What is wrong with them?! I been putting cortizone in and it helps a little bit for a while but it never completely goes away.

Re: Extremely itchy inner ears, no wax but dry, flaky, and itchy!!

sounds like serboric (spelling ?) dermatitis.

I have this , I also get sore around my ears sometimes and on my scalp.
It can look like a dandruff,

Re: Extremely itchy inner ears, no wax but dry, flaky, and itchy!!

I have been getting this pimple/cyst-like thing on my lobe. It looks like it has a couple heads? I've popped it just like you would a pimple. But this sore was getting better until last night-it got reinfected or something and now I'm back to square one.....it took a month for it to go down and start to fade!
Here's another skin condition that just started recently too: On my hands-my palms are dry and peeling, and just my right hand between the ring and middle finger, it's itchy like ezcema; with small bumps like a rash, it's DRY and scaly/flaky-and the soles of my feet and toes have peeling skin but isn't itchy.
Why am I getting all of these skin problems all of a sudden? The lids of my eyes are swollen and the lash follicles are inflammed and somelashes have fallen out. Has anyone ever had something likethis?

seboric dermatitis!!

If you get it on your eye lids and in your ears (that is classic), it also can appear on eyebrows including either side of the nose.

Not sure about the hands tho ?


you can wash your eyes with baby shampoo morning and night , this will clear it . I use a oilatum shampoo for my scalp and ears.

I've had it in my ears since I was like, 7. But why has it gone to my eyes all of a sudden? I never had it like this before.

Re: Extremely itchy inner ears, no wax but dry, flaky, and itchy!!

mine started in my late 20's , just out of the blue.

All you can do is manage it , I was told by my doctor that basically its a allergic reaction to the oil that comes thru the skin, but if you wash plenty then you are mopping up the oils and therefore should suffer less.

let me know how you get on.

forgot to say , always get a doctors opinion just incase , but it does sound just like dermatitis.
