Itchy ears olive oil

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy ears olive oil


Avatar_m_tn Recently both my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>s feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itch</span>y, tickly like there is something inside them, but i clean them both with a cotton bud stick everytime I have a shower (which is once every other day). so I don't think it is ear wax, any suggestions?
1433736_tn?1291828097 A lot of sites suggested a few drops of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> and vitamin E and/or grapefruit seed extract. I have these things here because I make soap and lotion and things. I started putting a few drops in each ear last night and it does seem to offer him some relief for a little while. Sorry this is so long. My question is: Is it possible it's ear mites? If so, will this remedy work and is it safe? How long until he's free of this using this method?
288415_tn?1231634102 But for the past year or two I've had EXTREMELY <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itch</span>y <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>s. Both of my inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>s get these irresistible itches. I use qtips all the time and I know that's so horrible but they're the only things that help me relieve the itches.I wake up in the middle of the night with the most crazy itches and it drives me insane! I hate being in public and getting ear itches because there's nothing I can do. I usually just close my ear & wait for it to go away but that's hard.
Avatar_n_tn I have discovered (after a ton of research) a home solution for my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itch</span>y <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>s which is astounding me. It has now been a month since I started this and I seem to be on the road to relief. If this helps even just one person here that is suffering like I was then I am glad to have helped. Get a small dispenser bottle that has a wide mouth, with a lid, and with which you will be able to dip a q-tip into.
Avatar_f_tn Hi Britt.....We would need more information to be able to help you..... How old is this guy? Where is the biting? Any particular area? You already mentioned hair loss, are there patches missing & where? Other than dry skin, any redness, crusting or lesions? How do you know it's not fleas? What are you feeding him? Anything else you can think of would be helpful......
Avatar_n_tn Once it stops etching, I take out my feet and dry those with a towel, without rubbing. 2- Soon after I apply some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> (may be brassica <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> or whatever natural <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> i can get) to it... As soon as I feel my skin drying, I apply oil again. Usually 4 to 5 times in 4 to5 hours. This not only stops etching for 4 to 5 hours, but gradually reduces the intensity of inflamation as well. I repeat this after every 5 to 8 hours.
Avatar_n_tn I have had this issue for 15+yrs and GP sent me to dermatogist who told me to cut my fingernails and use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> soap....nails stopped me from scratching but not the itch and the soap is awful so...back to cyling thru ice pack after ice pack until I am so numb and cold that becomes the issue but the itch is stopped for a bit. Haven't paid attention to the time of year but do find it is worse at night and has woken me up.
Avatar_n_tn Since the outbreak I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itch</span>y palms and occasionally <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itch</span>y ankles and feet, but my only outbreak of DH is on my elbows. Celiac Sprue or an allergy to wheat can be very silent and difficult to diagnose without the proper blood tests or biopsy of the small intestine. I'm hoping that following a gluten free diet will resolve my DH and itchy hands and feet, not to mention my chronic anemia.
Avatar_f_tn all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itch</span>y arm sufferers....please look into brachioradial pruritus. My arms, and only my arms, have itched for 10 years. no rashes, no psiorias, excema etc. The creams, allergery list is extensive as to what I have tried but nothing worked. ---------------The only thing that helps are ice packs.
Avatar_f_tn OK, I'm 36, and I've had the same <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itch</span>y leg problem since I was in elementary school. It only comes up when I walk or jog in COOL weather, not in the heat of Summer. It happened again this morning and I hate it! It can definitely drive someone completely insane! I'm not sold on the 'rise in body temperature' theory b/c I'm able to exercise when it's hot - and we also have a hot tub that has never given me a problem... I'm so tired of not knowing why!
Avatar_n_tn it may take a couple of days. also maybe follow up weekly with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> or tea tree <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>. i hope you do not have the same unknown itch that i have (witch may be a specific unknown type of fungus or even a parasite), i still cant get anyone to tell me what it is.
Avatar_m_tn To sooth my skin, I use jojoba oil and chemical-free lotions. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> hair product from Hollywood Products also helps. I do this everyday. for some odd reason, keeping my neck moist makes me feel much more comfortable.(Im also taking Claritin everyday because my MD recommended it. It helps) The key change i started 2 weeks ago, and I have had a 70-80% improvement. I have started an anti-yeast diet: very low carb, no sugar, high fiber.
Avatar_n_tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> ) 4oz 100% Tea Tree <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> 4oz Neem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> 2oz Lavenser <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> 2oz eucaliptus oil 2oz orange oil 2oz pepperment oil mix them all together in a bottle and apply to skin 2xs daily (usually after bathing. Now for my baths I fill the tub with water as hot as i can handle and mix the following ingredients 3oz of oil mixture 3oz of whitch hazel 6oz orange listerine(generic works to as long as it is citris flavored) 2cups Borax Laundry soap 2cups Epson salt half a bottle of peroxide.
Avatar_n_tn she told me to not have intercourse for 5 days use cortisone off brand 2x daily wash with fingers tips(which I do) with celaphil and use Virgin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> for lube. Still have the itch 5 days later with my period. She told me to call her back if it doesn't go away, but sounds like everyone has been trying doctors and they don't know. My husband suggested bathing in Iodine. I am going to try it tonight. I CAN"T TAKE IT!
Avatar_n_tn I have the same problem - <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itch</span>y scalp, neck, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ear</span>s and eyes with a rash for like a month. I started taking celexa a month ago and the problems started. When I went to the dermatologist she told me that is "highly unlikely that I have an allergic reaction to the medication because of the distribution of the rash" and she suggested taking a biopsy from my neck for analysis to rule out inflammatory immune diseases.
Avatar_n_tn here i for the last 6 months i have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itch</span>y eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
Avatar_n_tn My wife bought me an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> salt scrub that exfoliates as well as leaving a wonderful, soft film of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> on my skin that soaks in within an hour or so... It is unbelievable... I think it is now discontinued as she found it at TJ Maxx in NYC while we're on vacation their this week. It is Somerset Toiletry olive oil Salt Scrub. I took a hot bath and applied and scrubbed in with my hands over my entire body including my scalp and face.
Avatar_n_tn ) use natural products like aloe vera gel or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>, even somthing like baby <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>. Also, you can use homemade face masks like honey and oatmeal. 3.) relax and revive, e.g. exercise like yoga, also, meditate. 4.) drink lots of water 5.) wear clothes that are kind to the skin, avoid anything itchy or scratchy. 6.) avoid sunlight that can dry out the skin 7.) never scrub the eye area. 8.) ask your doctor for creams and bath addictives that are natural moisterisers and are kind to the skin.
Avatar_n_tn I did extensive research on the internet and am treating it with a combination of Neem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>, and tea tree <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> (equal amounts of each) All totally natural, found in any health food store or co-op. This oil is clearing up the irritated skin and the itching has completely gone away. I hope this helps.
Avatar_n_tn You can also add a couple of tablespoons of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> or jojoba <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>. I itch less if my skin isn't so dry. Try going as long as possible without shaving your legs. for some reason the hair on the legs helps hold in the moisture. Or, at least it seems that way with me.
1536712_tn?1294046901 Not just like totally unhealthy stuff ike chocolate, but salmon, salad with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> and such things too. At least I think so - it's hard to pinpoint the triggers sometimes... The itch also gets horrible when I work out, probably because of the sweating, so I haven't done that for quite some time. I also have really sore muscles in almost all my upper body, have been having that before, too - but not for a year or so. My ribcage-area, neck, upper arms etc. are sore and tender to touch.
Avatar_f_tn Yes Shea Butter is also good as well as natural oils like Almond <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>, Coconut <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> oil, etc They moisturize & heal the skin
Avatar_m_tn changed cooking oil from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> to vegetable <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>. 7. no change in detergent 8. past 4 months, continuous use of elective shave every day 9. never been exposed to harsh sun light or stress. I dont know what was the reason i get hives for. now i need to see allergy specialist and god knows whether they find root cause and treatment. I wish medical research improved to find allergy in seconds at doctors office..
1654177_tn?1319842094 Some people have had good results with using fine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> or coconut <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span>. Put a little on your palms, rub your hands together and rub onto your scalp after you shampoo/ I've never used Noxin though I do use a mild shampoo and rinse. I've lost some hair but started out with such a thick mane that people roll their eyes at me if I complain.
Avatar_f_tn Recommended treatment is to gently rub the spots with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> and brush them off with a dry washcloth, or comb them out of the hair with a soft brush or fine comb.
Avatar_n_tn The bottoms of your feet --- in places that NOTHING reaches. Uhm - oatmeal pack baths - <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>olive</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oil</span> on skin (dunno why this one worked for me - but it did) - extra conditioners in hair and no soaps that were drying. My skin was a creeping crawling mass of itch... So I can identify. TOTALLY. LOL! Remember to drink TONS of water. Almost literally. If it gets too bad, talk to the doctors OK? It could be a sign of other issues as well - so remember --- DO NOT DISCOUNT your sides...
Avatar_m_tn for over a year now I have been being driven crazy by my ear itching. Not the outside, earlobe, or anything like that, but the canal that leads to the ear drum or maybe even the ear drum itself. I have brought this up with both my previous PC and my current one. The previous PC just told me to put baby oil in the ear as it was probably dryness. Of course that didn't help at all.
