dry skin inside/itchy earlobes!
ss624 posted:
I've tried the whole sweet oil thing, and it just clogs my ears and never really solves the itching. Sometimes I wake up with earwax under my fingernails (ew!) and sometimes there is excessive dry skin resting around the outside of my earlobe. Any suggestions?

Please read my FAQ on "itchy ears". There is a link located on the main page of this board; near the top in the board description. This should answer your questions...

I have a earlobe problem. I have bumps on my chin, forehead, and earlobe Can anyone help?
Rod_Moser_PA_PhD responded:
Perhaps a dermatologist can help...or even your primary care medical provider.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for me, or anyone for that matter, to be able to determine a cause or a solution for your "bumps" and earlobe problems based solely on your very brief and vague description. A medical provider would have to physically SEE and EXAMINE you to make an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
