    Flaky skin in the ears

    I have a question concerning a friend of mine. He picks his ears and gets alot of dry skin out of them. At first I thought he was picking wax out of his ears, so I offered him a q-tip. He simply said, it isn't ear wax. Could this be some sort of skin disease? He says it itches and that is why he is picking dry skin out of his ears. I told him I hope it is nothing serious. Has anyone had dry skin in their ears? I think if he left it alone it would go away. Anyone know of someone with this type of thing?

    It sounds like it could be an allergy..shampoos or even soaps can cause dry skin or allergies where the skin flakes....but eczema or psoriasis can also cause dry itchy skin.
    He needs a dermatologist to check him out to be sure.

    Thank you so much for your reply. I will tell him to go to the doctor and get his ear checked out
