Causes Sores On Both Sides Behind The Ear?
I have had a strange feeling behind my ears for a long time, after I used glasses with iron rods, since then I felt my back ears like burns, dry and sometimes when scratched the dry skin peels off
Is the location of the wound only where the eyeglass butt is exposed? Skin conditions such as burns, dryness and peeling on the part of the eyeglass butt, may be due to contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis is inflammation of the skin due to contact with certain substances, causing skin irritation or allergic reactions.
Contact dermatitis will cause complaints in the form of itching, burning, redness, blistering, peeling, and very dryness. Contact dermatitis will improve when contact with the trigger material is stopped. If complaints make it uncomfortable, the doctor can prescribe an ointment filled with corticosteroids. If it blisters or causes injury, an ointment containing corticosteroids and antibiotics can be prescribed. Doctors can also give oral antihistamines and corticosteroids if needed.
Apart from contact dermatitis, your complaints can also be caused by atopic eczema, fungal infections of the skin, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, dermatitis venenata / being bitten by a tomcat, and impetigo. To be sure the cause must be seen directly by a doctor.
In the meantime you can do the following tips:
Try replacing glasses with handles from other materials, such as metal
Apply a hypoallergenic moisturizer
Use a soothing gel / soothing cream if necessary
Use sahmpo and a hypoallergenic soap for a while
If the complaint has improved and the skin has healed as before, you can try using another eyeglass handle
If within 1 week the skin complaints do not improve, I suggest that you check with your doctor first so that you can see and be examined directly to determine the cause of the skin complaint behind your ears. Then the doctor can provide more optimal treatment for you.
Hope this helps,
