Common Questions and Answers about Eczema in ear canal treatment

eczema

Avatar n tn I use this after every time I shower and I have not had a break since until now. Recently medication used for my ear caused me to develop eczema in my ear. I was prescribed a medication but after my first experience I had little faith in it. I decided to try my own cure first. I have been taking a small piece of rolled tissue and dipping it into the Cetaphil lotion. I then gently roll it around inside my ear.
Avatar n tn You don't get ani-fungal drops for a middle ear infection. You get ear drops for an outer ear infection which. The outer involves the Auricle, (ear lobe) & ear canal.
Avatar n tn What is an effective treatment for Eczema in the ear canal?
Avatar f tn I do keep the ear very dry using ear putty when I shower, and I always use a Q-tip to make sure the ear canal is dry, just in case some moisture made it through.
Avatar f tn The next step would be topical steroid lotion or drops into the ear canal, placement of steroid cream into the ear canal by the ENT, or use of a steroid-in-oil drop (Dermotic, for example). There are also other creams that have been tried (Elidel, etc) that are actually used for eczema or psoriasis on other parts of the body. This is not widely accepted as yet. Hope this helps! Good luck. See an ENT physician for a full diagnosis.
Avatar n tn The last diagnosis is that her eardrum is fine, but there is ear eczema present. The treatment is Erythromycin ointment, along with Triamcinolone cream, and 500 m.g. of Penicillin VK four times a day. Does this diagnosis sound like a correct one? If so, what is there to expect?... and is this a temporary condition or a lifelong problem? If this doesn't seem like a correct diagnosis, what else could it be?
Avatar n tn I also experience these weird pains in my head that come for about a second and then go and come back again every 10minutes or so. These pains are in 1 area in the back of my head in about a 1 square inch area.. Any ideas???
Avatar n tn I too have this smokey smell thing going on. I'm 56 female and have been having it for years. I've been to many ENT's who can't figure it out. I'm a Medical Transcriber for 35 years and have never even heard anyone else mention it so thought I was the only one with this silly problem. I noticed it today again while driving my car home from tap dancing class and like most of you it comes and goes. It is not as frequent as it use to be though it appears.
Avatar f tn Now, in the past few weeks, in my left ear canal, there is another patch of the same thing! It is litterally inside my ear canal. I have to use a q-tip on some mornings to clear my blocked ear canal from the scaling. I cannot afford to go to a dermatologist. I can't put steriod cream on it. It's litterally in my hair and in my ear. Since my symptoms got worse, I have attempted to remove any irritants. I changed to a organic lavender/hemp castille soap with no Sodium Laureth Sulfates.
Avatar n tn 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.
567488 tn?1244744266 Have you guys (girls) used Lupron before?? I had such a rash from the stuff, and the Estrace. They even put it down for me on my allergy medication along with Codeine. The stuff drives me up a wall. If you have any eczema be careful ~ it will multiply your symptoms. My acupuncturist said I had "heat" in my system and the meds just made it worse. Have a good night! (I was supposed to eat light, but was able to eat some roast & veggies...mmm...!!)..Nighty night!!
Avatar m tn As I was always itching my ear, the skin tissue was breaking free from the ear and getting in to the ear canal etc. He prescribed a product called Dermotic Oil (ear drops - prescription only and NO generic). I have used it for two weeks and I am weaning myself off it. I do NOT have any more itchig and I can heaer. Maybe this is is your answer.
Avatar f tn After 2 1/2 days inpatient treatment (5 bags IV antibiotics plus pain meds) for severe mastoiditis I was discharged and sent home with prescriptions, an ear wick and a diagnosis of excema that allowed infection into my ear canal. The mastoiditis is not the first time in the last four months that I've experienced this and it's definitely not resolved. The fluid buildup throughout the half of my face with the infection persists as does the pain and loss of hearing.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar m tn I felt dumb calling 911 for a nosebleed but it was pretty severe and was going on 8 hours. I was coughing up clots from the blood in my throat. Anyway in ER they told me to keep it moist. I had been keeping it moist with vaseline. I am seeing my pcp on Monday 3/23 and hopefully she can shed some light into this situation because I am afraid of blowing my nose or touching my face. As always, the scab is back and all the doc could tell me was it was a dry spot in my nose.
288415 tn?1231634102 Av, its horrible. Mine has been going on for three years. The only benefit is that I do not hear my husband's snoring. I lay down and they immediately clog. I did used to get really nasty smelling crud out of them every morning. I have had times when my jaw is so sore, or my ear, or below my ear. This has been such a pain in "the ear" for me. Richt now the itchiness is truly driving me nuts.
Avatar f tn In June 2013 my daughter, then age 8, had a surgery to try and reconnect her bony middle ear (ossicular chain repair) in her left ear. The middle ear had been damaged by her very young (age 2) experience with the wax and skin compaction of keratosis obturans. After almost 2 years, we are still waiting and watching to see how much her hearing in her left ear will improve. She is showing improvement in the low frequencies, but she still has her high frequency hearing loss.
Avatar f tn I usually avoid consulting 'Dr Google' but pain has made me start to wonder if have TN. 2 yrs ago I had several months of facial pain & swelling. Initially, I was thought to have salivary gland stones due to the hard lumps to one side of my face. Eventually they decreased, but swelling appeared around my jaw & next.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms describe exactly what has happened to my nose to which I have no definitive answer despite seeing various consultants.
Avatar f tn but if the doctor sees a lot of fluid in the ear itself pushing up against the ear canal it can be used. it was a lot more common to prescribe decongestants 5 years ago. that's why i was surprised about that. although, you live in a different area of the country, so maybe they do things differently down there? when dd was congested, she slept terrbily but always woke herself up to breathe. the poor thing wouldn't just breathe out of her mouth.
Avatar m tn I have had repeated parotid gland pain and swelling along with salivary gland swelling. I almost had a root canal done in a tooth that did not need it. Thanks for your help. What should I do next? Getting very sick and scared.
Avatar n tn This somewhat kept it at bay but my eyelid was always red and swollen and peeling would come and go. I also had this condition inside my ears on the top just going into the ear canal. Anyway, after reading all of your posts I became more and more interested in what people were saying about Mario Bedescu control cream. I had an extra $30.00 that I could afford to buy the cream with and quickly ordered it from Nordstroms.
Avatar n tn My hearing was getting worse in that ear..sounds were distorted and amplified and caused pain. I thought I had a very bad ear infection. I'd thought I'd slept in a bad position and had a stiff neck. (Leading up to this episode, I'd been under a terrible amount of stress for weeks...very tired...had some cold/flu like symptoms, including loose bowel movements. ) I went to the emergency room at 2 AM because I couldnt tolerate the worsening pain and the facial paralysis had me frightened.
407149 tn?1211736107 Wow...count me in. I too smell gas/exhaust wherever I go. Burning sensation in the eyes, no different than if I were to be in an enclosed area with strong engine exhaust present. What the heck is this anyway? I've told my wife and she initially gave me the ol' raised brow of skepticism. After showing her a thread like this one, she now believes me and wants and answer or two just like me.
Avatar m tn 2 degree temperature for 6 days (it was coming back to normal at some parts of the day) Here is the story On the 24th of december I went to the dentist to have a root canal treatment on one of my tooth and other work was done on my teeth, the dentist prescribed me Dalacin C 300mg for a week in order to avoid any infections. I also have a rotten tooth that also needs a root canal treatment.
Avatar n tn 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.
544292 tn?1268886268 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.
Avatar n tn Amazing- I've been taking Oregano oil in green tee for an all-body treatment to yeast/fungus infection. I applied two drops of the oil to the used warm tea bag and held it to my lip for 15 minutes. It's felt great all day! I'm going to try doing this 2-3 times a day and see if it clears up.
Avatar f tn The periodontist wants me to wait until the permanent filling is in the tooth they did a retreat on the root canal on, and for a month after that to see if the feeling in my mouth will go away. He also says that he is 100% sure that none of my symptoms are related to the implant. He just does not get it. Next week I am going to an ENT to talk about the inflammation of the sinus above the implant and to ask his opinion, so I will let you know how that goes.
Avatar n tn I have been to many doctors and of course the dont know what it is, I have done many studies and have realized it is anxiets, and what is happening in most cases is that the anxiety is causing the muscles in your forehead and muscles around your ear and inner ear to tense up giving you the sinus pressure and the dizzyness and equilibrium problems, try seeing a doctor for anxiety it might work, its been working for me.
