I noticed flakin
g on the back of my ear in
9th grade and it soon developed in
to a "cut
the crease of my ear that never healed. It would leak a clear fluid, then get flakey and crusty, which was particularly gross as it would get on my hair. It was itchy, pain
ful, and embarrassin
g as it was visible any time I put my hair up, which was a constant necessity as I was an athlete. I endured it for years, tryin
g many different topical creams prescribed to me.
