Has anyone suffers from ear eczema had hearing problems? I've had ear eczema for years but and I lost about 20% of my hearing after having a baby. A while back a doctor gave me Nystatin Triamcinolone ointment which helped but my ear eczema came back on and off.

Elocon
Generic Name: mometasone topical (moe MET a sone)
Brand Names: Elocon

What is Elocon?
Elocon is a topical (for the skin) steroid. It reduces the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness, and swelling.

Elocon is used to treat the inflammation and itching caused by a number of skin conditions such as allergic reactions, eczema, and psoriasis.

Just a Rx any doctor can give, and it works as a treatment. There is no cure.

i just went to the ENT today and they told me i had the same thing. i was in shock! i'm 16 and i have been dealing with these since i was 7 and they are just now figuring it out. i have outstanding pain in both of my ears and it still hurts after strong pain medication. my doctor prescribed me a steroidal ear drop and i can not use Q-tips because it can irritate it and bring the eczema back instantly i had mastoiditis when i was younger and now suffer from hearing loss. i have struggled with this all my life now and all i can say is its gunna get worse before it gets better.

He was deployed overseas for one year (at which time the problem started) and has suffering from this for about 3 years now. The doctors say there is nothing he can do for it but there has to be something! Something has to be out there to give him relief. Anyone have this problem or can provide first hand experience on how to manage or cure this? THANK YOU!
I've had exzema my whole life on my fingers. Mine seems to be aggravated by eggs and soy. One thing I started taking every day is pumpkin seed oil. This is a natural anti-inflammatory. Also..real licorice candy is good for exzema. REAL LICORICE ROOT increases your bodies corti-steroids. Before you buy licorice candy besure its made with real licorice root. Most use anise. I just bought some real licorice candy online. Good luck!!!

I've had this problem for almost a year & have been in a lot of pain with it. I tried several different things & finally tried neosporin. As long as I put neosporin inside my ears a couple times a week, I have no problems. No more itchiness or soreness....such a relief & such an easy cure!!

Magiccream has not been FDA approved. So use at your own risk. 3 yrs from now they will find out it causes other complications most likely. I also suffer from ear eczema,which was caused by bacterial infection I contacted while working as a flight attendant. It has taken me almost 4 years to get it under control. It was trial and error. I first flush ear with hydrogen peroxide on Q-tip you will hear it bubbling. Then a eczema cream called Dermarest (walmart,walgreens,target) cost @ 6.00 dollars. Apply with cotton or Q-tip. Flush ear morning, apply cream. Few hours later apply cream. Few hours later flush, apply cream, then at bed time. Do this for 2 days. By third day you be able to apply just cream morning and bedtime. Once or twice a week flush with peroxide morning and night.I went through such misery until I found dermarest eczema cream and believe me I tried everything both natural and meds from the doctor. Hope this helps .

I have seen various posts recommending the use of Magicream. As Karen Las Vegas pointed out, it's not been FDA approved for use in the USA. However, even worse than that, is that it's actually illegal to sell it in Ireland.

http://www.imb.ie/EN/Safety--Quality/Advisory...

Despite the website saying it contains 100% natural ingredients, the Irish Medicines Board found it is a mixture of 2 other medicines - clobetasol propionate and ketoconazole. Clobetasol propionate-containing products cannot legally be sold in Ireland without a prescription, while the sale of ketoconazole-containing products is confined to pharmacies only. It is illegal to sell such products on the internet to customers in Ireland.

Please do not use this product on children without seeking proper medical advice (and I don't mean anecdotal stories from strangers on the internet).

I too suffer with ear eczema.
Sometimes there is a fungal component to it and so an ear drop that contains a steroid and an antifungal will treat the acute problem. The fact that your husband gets pain suggest that there is an infection which needs treating.

What I have found prevents my ears from scaling and itching is Extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil and dead sea salts. when I have my bath I place a little of the salt on my wet finger and put in into my ear, I then stand upright and use water on my fingers agan to disslve and remove the salt from my ear.I then apply a small amount of coconut oil to the tip of my little finger and then rub it in the outer ear. I do not put any thing further in side my ears.

These have worked to control the itch and the scaling for me. However, I think that if your husband is having pain he needs to see the doctor, to get treatment for the infection.

Having suffered with eczema myself, I like to educate people on how to get rid of their eczema.

I have also had similar symptoms with an intense deep endless itch followed by drainage, flaking or "crusting" and sometimes my ears feel very warm to the touch due to all of the irritation and then they peel and are fine until the unpleasant cycle begins all over again. Good luck everyone this is indeed an annoying condition.

Finally found a doctor who knew how to cure my ear eczema...it's a product called "Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment".
I used it on Friday and by Monday it was cured!!!
I've suffered from itchy, flaky, and dry ears for over a decade and it was gone in a matter of days.

I have had ear eczema for about 3 years. It is not only a nuisance and hurts er itching so much, but is also is embarrasing! My ENT prescribed me Mometasone Furoate Cream USP 0.1%. In just 2 days it is completely gone! I have no insecurities because the medicine is amazing! As your Dr. IT WORKS!!

I read on a forum that Mario Badescu Skin Control Cream had worked for several people with ear ezcema. Having suffered with ear ezcema in both ears for fourteen years, I sent off for it a few weeks ago and within two/three days of using a very small amount of the cream the improvement was amazing. Within two weeks the ezcema has gone.

It's made in America and I ordered some on the internet and received it within a week. I am so glad I took the time to read about remedies from other sufferers and truly amazed at how quickly the product worked.

In case anyone reads this, Ive had the same problem off and on for several years now in the right ear. Every ENT Ive seen has prescribed Dermotic Oil ear drops. I haven't found it has provided long term relief yet but it does seem to help short term...and it did for a while lead to a period of "remission" for a year or so before it started again. Dermotic Oil is now available in generic form (I was able to get the generic cheaper at Walmart0

Drink water! I got my ear eczema under control by drinking more water! When I wake up in the morning (when most de-hydrated) I drink 3 or 4 glasses. Forget the hydrating lotions, moisturize from the inside by drinking water.

Try drinking 12 glasses a day. Hope this works for you.

Might take a few weeks to see full benefit.

If you have success, please post in the forum.

I must agree with the above poster to drink water. HEalthy skin starts from within and eating skin nourishing foods will help. Another thing is to try ONE product at a time for a week just to see how it works. I have really bad eczema on my hands and feet and find myself scratching all day if I don't moisturize at least twice a day. Castor oil is a nice thick oil that helps alot. In the summer, try PURE coconut oil and also remember that most people with eczema are sensitive to fragrance so use natural products and essential oils only! Remember that your largest organ is your skin and you must treat it as such..

I've found that you can cure chronic ear infection--which is often ear eczema--by taking brewer's yeast. This cleared up my own chronic ear drainage and itching, and unclogged my ears in a matter of two or three days, though I had had this problem for years.
For acute ear infections, take brewer's yeast, but also drop olive oil in the ears. This should be olive oil of the highest quality: first-cold-pressed and extra-virgin. This is amazingly effective.
The olive-oil treatment is even more effective if you can use olive oil in which mullein flowers have been steeped. Gather a bunch of fresh mullein flowers in a jar, add olive oil to cover, and set the jar in a warm place for two or three weeks. Strain off the oil using a coffee filter. Moisture droplets will sink to the bottom. Pour off the oil so that you leave behind the part that is moisture contaminated. You can bottle the part your poured off, and use it for ear drops.
For eczema on your skin, I have found that an ointment made with balm of Gilead buds is very effective for even the worst cases. To make the ointment, simmer the buds in olive oil to cover for a couple of hours, strain and bottle. For mild eczema, applying the contents of a vitamin A capsule, or a vitamin A&E capsule has worked for me. Sarsaparilla tea, used both internally and externally is also supposed to work.
I think the mullein oil might also work for eczema, since it works so well for ear infections.

Always take brewer's yeast for just about any skin problem.

I had eczema in the ears for years and the doctors told me the same thing. They gave me cream that didn't work. Until I went to see my dermatologist and he gave clobetasol propionate topical solution. It works. Try seeing a dermatologist maybe he could recommend something. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
