Common Questions and Answers about Eczema in dogs ears

eczema

I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that. ENT Dr.
I still have this awful feeling day and night of fullness in my ears, head, pressure around my sinuses the back of my ears and neck, my teeth and jaw feels sore, Sometimes I feel slight muscle twitches usually along my legs somewhere or even my bum area. When Im lying down, sometimes when I switch sides, its as though my nasal areas clear slightly and so do my ears, but only for a few seconds.
Took new strong antibiotic pills along with a long dose of ear drops. Dr. Said Chronic ear infections are harder to get rid of. No running in ears but still maddening external itching. Crusty **** can be scraped off the itchy area. Its like dried onion skin. C'mon I know I am not the only one with this ****. Help!
My mother took me to the pharmacist, and he gave me some anti-hestimines(?). The redness in my ears went, but the rash on my face is still there. Although, it has subsided somewhat. It has a rough texture, but is neither sore nor itchy. The only way it's bothering me is being there, and being able to see it. However, the redness has disappeared to an extent. We ran through a list of things that is could have been. Does it sound like an allergic reaction?
Doing some research,,I read dogs can be affected by this so I called my dog's vet (who is straight forward and will not take advantage)3/5/09,,,told him my Dx and asked if I should get a shampoo just in case with my dog (she's an inside dog). He said dogs and humans can cross contaminate each other,,,passing back and forth. He asked if my dog had been itching and I said no. Told me to wear long sleeves before petting her,,,take precaution.
The ENT's say that is all in my head - some say it is from having ear buddies in my ears all day with air "voices" hissing though them, I dunno but it sure is annoying. Its like getting to the top of the hill and my ears are plugged then they don't unplug when I come down. Actually too, they get worse when I do that. Ho-hum... Anyway, glad to hear about the smoke smell. That was something that I really wondered about. I will continue to monitor this site and see whats up.
About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
This may seem like an odd question, but do you have gasto-intestinal issues as well (cramping, constipation/diareah, mucous in stool, etc)? If so, you may be suffering from a fungal infection. I'd been getting progressively sicker over the past few years and none of the many specialists I went to could figure out the cause of my MANY symptoms (broad range, developed over time so they seemed unrelated).

Since starting the shots his blood work is all out of whack, he's had allergic pink eye 4 times. He's had fluid in his ears, asthma attacks, rashes, eczema is way worse, he's moodier (he's also bipolar & has PDD-NOS). Our allergist said we'd go another month or so at our last visit (we see her on the 18th) and then determine if the benefits of the shots are worth all the stuff it's putting him through.
Wilson is what brought me to his Community, and I have learned a lot here and feel like I am among friends, people who love and respect pets (dogs in my case - though in a life-time that involved raising two human children we have experienced many varieties of pets).
I was medicating my 5 domestic rats with oral anitbiotics in the month of December but the regimen was over about 3 weeks ago. I bathe dogs as my career. I have had chicken pox as a child. I am constantly around animals. I do not use moisturizers regularly. I have very dry skin and my knuckles usually start to bleed before the winter is over. I live in a dry, desert climate. I have never heard of family members having similar problems.
I have giant HOLES all over my arms and legs as well as the generalized, weeping rash everywhere else from my ears to my toes and everywhere in between. Between my asthma and eczema, I can't hold a job for more than a couple months at a time. I am a nurse and am unable to work as a nurse any longer due to the risk of infection from all of the open areas on my body.
I do not have psoriasis, but from time to time I get odd breakouts on my scalp and in my ears where my skin seems to grow like crazy. This results in thick plaques and lots of dry, hard skin. I can be fine for months, then within a week it's like my scalp just falls apart. Then, usually months later, it slowly goes away again. It seems too mild to be psoriasis, but whatever it is, it is annoying/embarrassing and I do suspect it's linked to my chronic infections.
Itchy rashes have many causes besides scabies, such as eczema or even nerves. Applying Elimite to scabies will almost always clear it up in 1 week. Persistence makes one need to question the original assumption. Just thinking about scabies is enough to make everyone around itch and scratch. Do yourselevs a favor--stop applying insecticides , changing linens, and laundering clothes. See another dermatologist for another opinion! Good luck. Dr.
I don't have much to offer you... pretty much everything you need is in these posts, in yourselves, and in your connections with other people. I never took tramadol, but opiates were one of several substances I was addicted to when my sky fell some years before tramadol was introduced. I believe absolutely that the primary characteristics of tramadol withdrawall are substantially the same as opiate withdrawall.
Persistent dull headaches Persistent sinus problems (Inflammation) Pain behind eyes Gum inflammation Heartburn Post Nasal drip (Thick mucus) Neck pain Mild anxiety (I seem to be controlling it) Pressure in ears Jaw clicking, popping (Wear night guard) Fatigue Lack of motivation, concentration Heavy slow heartbeat (At times) I have had the mri’s, ct scans, ecg’s and blood tests that always come back normal, and strangely that leaves me disappointed, when someone tells you that they cant fi
if he is not licking himself bald he is scratching himself. He has scabs in front of his ears that he scratches at all the time. I am embarassed to say that the licking all started 6 years ago when i brought home a kitten. Buster is a needy cat... he needs attention all the time, so I thought I'd get a friend for him. The kitten brought mites but wasn't bothered by them... though Buster was. I found out that some cats are just more sensitive than others...
I have not worn make up today and have only applied vaseline and aqeous cream. I haven't changed any toileteries or make up in the last 2 months. I am not sure what it could be? I don't think it is eczema, but believe it could be an allergic reaction to something. I can't seem to work out what it could be? Could it be an allergic reaction to something i am using around the eye or a food product? Please help me.
May start pour it in the ears they don't like it. lungs is taken the smell and force it in the ears. They are very very small.

On Monday and Tuesday, several people commented on the state of my eyes, especially the right one, which seemed to be in a worse condition. My eyelids were dry and painful to touch, especially in the corner and it was continuously weeping, until yesterday afternoon when it seemed to heal up to the point where it looked sore, but no longer felt it. And then today- my awful eyes are worse than ever. While my actual eyes are fine, my eyelids are large, puffy and as per usual- RED.
I live with 2 cats which I could have never have done as a child. Keep in mind the itching is also present in the right nipple. This often happens when the palm itching begins. I don't see any dryness on the nipple or the palms. Thank you for your help!
I understand your frustration, particularly since you obviously want to get this under control so that you don't jeprodize your participation in the trial. I'm in the trial too and made some hikes in the sierra mountains. I thought I was protected with a wide brim dorky hat, etc...My nurse explained to me that it was the interferon that made me more vulnerable to the sun. Here's what I did to sooth the skin and help heal: I used a liquid bath additive that is very dark in color.
34 am and it starts getting bad in the later evening and is very uncomfortable now). Lately I've been getting this in the morning. No new meds, foods, exposures, clothing, body or hair products either. Please help!
I've started using Neem on my daughter that forever has that nasty, eczema rash in the folds of her elbows. Gone! No more elidel, no more cortersone! I highly recommend Neem. The only thing I need now is the money to fix my stretched out, thinned out eyelids which make me look 10 years older than I am.
Day 22 Cold Turkey Tramadol ... I woke up HAPPY. I used to wake up happy all the time, before the Tramadol. Waking up happy is good. Then I tried to move. I had to use my hands and arms to get up out of bed. My body has been pushed as far as it will go. So after trying all my best tricks (aminos, coffee, food, vitamins, water) I finally stopped the struggle and called in sick for work. Tomorrow will be a busier day anyhow.
I also suffer from fatigue, sleep apnea, insomnia, hearing difficulties (I actually have really good hearing according to hearing tests, I was told my brain has issues recognizing the input I receive from my ears, especially in noisy situations). I also have high blood pressure, high cholestorol and water retention. That's it, that's the summary of my medical ills to date.
) I'm going to be completely honest, I even feel them in my noise/ although for a long time it felt like something was in my ears -had them checked and nothing was there. I had 1 occasion when I felt one go into my eye (while my lid was closed:( and felt a sensation in my ear. what on earth is this!!
My itchiness has been getting progessively worse for the past few years. I'd say almost 3 yrs now. It's to the point where I can't even engage in intercourse with my partner, go shopping or even go out in the sun. I keep hearing and reading how Urticaria, usually has signs on the skin surface but I don't, except for the really bad itchy feeling.
