5 Natural Ear Eczema Treatments

Posted

Ear eczema can be an extremely itchy and irritating situation. Left untreated, eczema in ears or around them can turn painful due to extremely sensitive skin skin, soreness or infection.

Ear eczema can affect various parts of the ear, yet it is most commonly seen on the external part of the ear. This area, also known as the pinna, can experience itching, scaling, redness and/or flaking. The top, back and ear folds are also common areas for ear eczema.

Eczema in ears is also quite common and can appear in the ear opening (meatus), ear canal or ear drum. Inflammation of the ear canal is known as otitis externa. If you are suffering from this condition, it’s important to seek medical attention to avoid infection.

Types of Ear Eczema 

Atopic Eczema —appears on ears and skin behind the ears. This type of eczema can cause itching, dryness and redness, as well as painful cracks between the ear lobe and face.

Seborrhoeic Dermatitis—most commonly seen on the scalp, but can move down to the ear folds, top of ears, or external ear canal. This type of eczema in ears and around results in scaling and redness, yet more severe cases can develop crusty cracks.

Asteatotic Dermatitis—usually affects older people and can be caused by climate changes or over-washing.

Contact Dermatitis—caused by irritants such as hair products or allergens like with systemic nickel allergy syndrome. Can usually be prevented by eliminating specific irritant or allergens.

If you’re suffering from eczema in ears or around them, we suggest talking to your doctor as soon as possible to prevent infection.
