My husband suffers from what multiple doctors have told him is "ear eczema." His main symptom is extreme ear itch, which then leads to pain down to his jaw. Sometimes his ear is even real sensitive to the touch.
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!
My ear doctor prescribed DermOtic Oil (Hill Dermaceuticals, Inc.)
I used the oil in my ears and it worked almost immediately! It doesn't cure, but it does give relief for a week or so. Also you might try just applying Vaseline in the ears. This also works to some degree. I've had ear eczema for years, too, and tried all kinds of antibiotics, but these two things (used separately)are the only relief I've found. Hope this is helpful.

Ive had this for 5 years now and have an infection again at the moment. Got drops to clear it up & finally a dr is going to try something different to stop it. He's going to paint my ears with a cream every few weeks. Has anybody had this done & does it work? I so hope it does

I'm 23 now , and have had SEVERE ear eczema since around the age of 3. It looked so horrible I was too embarrassed to wear my hair up, and had to maintain a nightly ritual of picking out the flaking skin. They bled and secreted clear fluid every time. Pretty gross.

Anyway, I was skeptical about trying Mario Badescu's Control Cream, but it freaking WORKED. I saw results after a few days but it's been a few weeks now and my eczema has COMPLETELY vanished. It's amazing. Seriously, if nothing else you've tried has worked, take a shot at this - it's $17 for a small amount of it, but a little goes a long way for me. And the price was totally worth not being miserably embarrassed to show my ears anymore.

I have suffered from ear eczema for the past five years. Itching, draining
crusting and pain. Then two days later the same thing over and over.
My Doctor has tried everything, telling me there is no cure. Seven weeks
ago I returned to the doctor and he prescribed TACLONEX SCALP ---
He gave me a sample and a prescription. In two days I was completely healed.
I got my prescription filled but I am still using my Net. wt 4g little sample.
I am blessed to have insurance and the company that makes this drug pays
the co-pay for a year. This has been like a miracle!!!!!!!!!

I read about the cream on an eczema website. In 2 days my ears seemed to be back to normal and now continue to be, without scale and weeping.I had extreme crusting, itching and drainage due to the side effect of an Rx I'm on. I got the cream on Amazon and you can see my review there.

For ear eczema get prescription for Fluocinolone O.01% or DermOtic. They works for weeks at a time.

I have had ear eczema for years and have tried various medications - will now try the olive oil - but please don't think I am crazy but have now noticed that whenever I drink diet Coke my ears are TERRIBLY ITCHY then. This has happened quite a few times and I don't think it is just coincidence.

In reply to Gill - you buy it from the internet, www.magicream123.com . I am still eczema free after using it for a week. I can't believe it - because I have tried everything. The relief started immediately I used it. I use it night and morning. It really is magic to have relief from the itching and scaliness. I wish I was on commission for this advertising!
I can NOT wait to try it! I have been suffering for twelve years and tried I thought everything. I want to tell everyone with this problem do not go with the steroid cream. It thins out your ear's membrane and makes the problem worse. Thank u!

Use coconut oil. It is one of the best home remedy.

I've had horrible eczema since I was a young child and in my ears was the worst. It flared up badly with hormonal changes including adolescence, pregnancy, and now pre-menopause. My grandma used to do something when I was younger that seemed to help-she was a naturalist and practiced homeopathic medicine. She's long gone but I remember the treatment. I started using because I was at my wits end and being a girl if modern science I tried all the doctor recommended and prescribed methods first with virtually no relief. But my grandmas way had me feeling better the next day. Try it. It really does soothe! 1. Rinse ear canal gently with lister one mouthwash. If your ear is really irritated you can dilute it with water to cut down on the burning but full strength is best. Let it sit in your ear for a couple to three minutes. Dry gently. Then, you gently place honey in your ear. Yes honey. I use clover honey. My grandma used pure honey from a beekeeper. Let the honey set for ten minutes then rinse with warm water and dry gently. Immediately coat your ear with some zinc oxide cream. The listerine and honey kill the bacteria that causes the itching flaking scabs and the zinc keeps moisture of the healing skin. You can reapply the zinc several times a day too keep the itch down. It really works.

PREMANENT CURE
I cured myself with a thyroid medicine and an elimination diet.
I had severe eczema in my ear canals. I would scratch at it and get ear infections. I thought I would eventually become deaf. I was very afraid. So I researched all of it.
I had almost no ear wax. I also had dry skin, low morning body temp, intolerance of heat/cold, very slow hair & nail growth, and other signs of low thyroid. But my thyroid blood test results showed only a bit low, but still in the normal range.
To increase ear wax production and restore normal oily skin, I took a thyroid medicine Cynoplus, which is a T4/T3 combination. I now have some ear wax and oily (not dry)skin. Before all this, I was trying all kinds of natural soaps and shampoos, body lotions, etc as the solution. Now I can use any soap or shampoo and don't need skin lotion.
I also try to have more healthy oils in my diet -- olive oil, real butter, peanut butter, etc.
Also, to fully stop eczema flare-ups, I did an elimation diet of the most common food allergens (corn, wheat, tree nuts, coffee, alcohol, gluten, etc). I found that whenever I ate the smallest amount of corn (in any form, including high fructose corn syrup [found in MANY foods and drinks], corn starch, popcorn, etc) the eczema would start within 1-2 days. This happened even after I increased my ear wax by boosting my thyroid, but the eczema was very minor -- it didn't spread to the ear canal, just at the opening and went away quickly.
I have been free of ear eczema for three months now and also feel much better overall. The Cynoplus thyroid hormone T4/T3 also cured my chronic fatigue, brain fog, frequent depression, and slow wound healing.
Research/Google elimination diet and also the symptoms of low thyroid (hypothyroidism)-- and cure yourself permanently.
If you can't afford many doctor visits or expensive U.S. medicines, or you have a doctor who is unwilling to let you try thyroid hormones, you can try another doctor -- or order online inexpensive Cynoplus from a Mexican pharmacy and start at the lowest dose. You can also order U.S. blood tests via the Internet (without a local doctor), with blood taking labs in almost every U.S. city; the test results are emailed to you.
If you can afford it, it is best to see a doctor, ask for a hard copy of blood test results, and get a prescription for U.S. medicines. Remember that even if blood tests show normal levels of thyroid hormones, but you still have many of the low thyroid symptoms, you may need to insist that your doctor let you try thyroid hormone pills -- especially if you have serious problems like eczema in you ear canal and resulting, dangerous ear infections. See if T4/T3, or T4 alone, increases ear wax production. You will know in one week if it works.

I have ear eczema and have been suffering for years with it. It has also caused yeast infections in my ears. I have been going to the ENT on a regular basis and the bill is getting outragous. They vac my ears, put in voilet powder in my ears, give me some cream and drops for my ears. Is there anything out there that can help curb these flair ups? My face and ear swell so bad and it hurts like crazy! I'm so sick of this and need some relief!

I have been with ear eczema for 15 years.The ENT gave me Fucicort and tried other creams to no avail. It really drives you mad when it itches as its internal. Thanks for the olive oil and Magic cream tip. I'll try them. Though I don't know if we get magic cream here.I'll let you know if it works and hope it will help many other in our cases. Thanks.

I think you're on to something. I'm convinced removing diet coke, sugar, and milk will help me tremendously.

I have used pure natural honey - the purer the honey the better you might need to go to a health food store (you can not use the honey from the grocery store) you warm it - not hot just warm (needs to be runny) and put in your ear no farther than you would put a qtip and leave for 10 or 15 mins and clean with a warm clean moist cloth and the use baby diaper cream - the diaper cream will whick away the moisture that may cause infection and will stop the itch - honey is a natural antibiotic and will fight any infection that you may have from scratching or picking - but the most important part it to keep moisturized so your ear does not become dry and flaky which causes the itching - so as soon as you feel am itch apply the cream and I know it is hard but do not scratch when itchy. Apply the honey once or twice a day for a few days and keep the diaper cream with you so you can apply throughout the day - I know it sounds weird but I have had eczema since birth and i have it on many parts of my body - but when i got it in my ears 2 years ago i thought it was going to drive me crazy and i tried drops and creams and nothing really helped - so what have you got to lose if does not work for you, you can put the honey on toast. At least I am not trying to sell you some "magic potion"

Good luck to you
