Itching In The Ear Area For 3 Days?
Good evening doctor … I am Frida. Please ask. 3hrs back my ears are itchy. Can you know what is the cause? Please share the explanation. Thank you for your attention. Regards.
Good evening Frida, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Itching in the ear area can occur due to certain medical conditions that affect both the ear directly and the skin around the ear. Among the possibilities are:
Fungal skin infections
Allergy to cosmetics, imitation ingredients, or other chemicals
External ear infection, either by bacteria or fungi
Enter the insects
Other skin disorders such as psoriasis or tinea
Our advice is that you should check with a general practitioner first, so that you can distinguish whether it is a skin or ear problem. Your doctor may also perform a history dig, a brief physical examination by looking at the area you are complaining about before giving treatment, usually in the form of ointments or drops and oral medication. If your complaint does not improve, return to your doctor for evaluation and be referred between an ENT doctor or a dermatologist if necessary.
Meanwhile, if you are using earrings or other jewelry with imitation materials, it's best to take them off first. Try not to scratch the itchy area with anything, fingers or cotton buds as much as possible, as scratching can make the condition worse, and keep water from getting into the ear. So, hopefully it answers your question.
