Have a look at the shampoo from the Skin Salveation.Its part of their skincare program.Whilst washing hair the overspill/drenching covers the ears,can't be avoided generally!.
It does help reduce any itchyness of ears and helps any eczema around the neck and I remember comments on the site there has been the occaisional success with psoriasis.
I use it as a shower wash daily as part of my cleansing regime.
So far,so good!.Eczema free,for 8 years now.No more embarrasment about blotchy skin.
I can remember being scared to sunbathe at all.I looked like a character out of the old Marvel Comics.(Young Mums won't have a clue what i'm talking about!)
Looking forward to long hot summer days wearing less clothes again!!

A few years ago I developed this problem on the ear opening and was at a loss as to what to do about it and out of sheer desperation, I applied with a q-tip a few drops of left over cortocosporin suspension for an ear infection I had at an earlier time. I found using it topically worked like a miracle! It stopped the itching and healed up the eczema in only a few days and now I rarely have a problem with it. Jane is correct, washing your hair causes moisture that will aggrivate the problem. I also have a small area on my outer ear that will errupt from time to time and I found Bacitracin ointment does the trick for that. All of what I discovered fits perfectly with the article. The ear drops last for months with a cost of about $30 without insurance and Bacitracin is a few dollars at most stores. Both are staples of my medicine cabinet for the occassional breakouts. However, until I used this treatment, it was often and occassional is blessing to me! Hope this may help someone else looking for a simple cost effective treatment.
