Have you tried using a cotton swab dipped in E45 lotion and applied to the affected areas. It will ease the itching and thus lower the risk of further inflammation

My doctor recommended 'Eurax' cream for me about a year ago, for use on my hands. It's really done the trick. I only have mild eczema, but it's improved ten fold. It's a hydrocortisone cream, available over the counter in your pharmacy. Not sure if it would be safe in your ears, but it's worth enquiring..
Best of luck,

I have suffered from itchy, irritated skin inside my ears for the past ten years, I think as a result of having frequent ear infections which were treated with antibiotic drops. The skin in the middle ear on both sides in constantly infected and itchy and I have been told that scar tissue is building up and will eventually affect my hearing. Various specialists have been unable to treat it.
Has anyone else had this problem, and found any solution?
