Eczema in ears

I am writing on behalf of my sister who doesn't have access to a computer and would like to ask if anyone knows of hearing aids that are suitable for someone whose eczema is exacerbated by wearing these aids. Is there one on the market that is hyper allergenic?
Thank you.

  • It is very sad to read of the suffering some people go through because of a relatively minor condition such as eczema in the ear. Some posters have been to specialists, who have told them there is no cure.

    Why me? It may be the obvious question that you may ask yourself or the doctor when there is intense itching in the ear caused due to eczema in ears. Perhaps you may not be aware, that you are not the only one. There are thousands of cases of eczema in ear.

    Eczema is a skin condition which can occur anywhere on the body. It can affect any age group. The deep seated itching inside the ear due to eczema can be quiet maddening. This inflammatory response of the skin can be influenced by various factors environmental as well as internal.

    However, in adults eczema in ear can become a chronic affair. In this context it is important to know what causes eczema in ear and how to treat it.

    Symptoms Of Eczema In Ear

    Eczema in ear can occur either in the outer ear or in the inner ear canal. The first symptom that may appear is soreness in ear.
    The ear may become red followed by intense itching. Patient has constant urge to scratch.
    The skin around the ear becomes dry and parched. Fluid oozes out from the eczematous site.
    Swelling and pain in ear is another common symptom associated with eczema in ear.

    Remedies For Eczema In Ears

    Keep the ear moisturized as dryness causes irritation and aggravates itching. Apply Vaseline, it is a good moisturizer. Even coconut oil acts as a good moisturizer. It is more suitable when eczema is inside the ear.
    Avoid being in dry air. It encourages the skin to become drier and cause more itching.
    Always clean your ear with warm water before applying the moisturizer. In case of inner ear, use an ear bud cleaner, but be gentle.

    Warm oil is one of the best ways to soothe an itchy ear and it can help to remove excess ear wax.

    One of the simplest ways to do this is to use olive oil to relieve an itchy ear.

    Water and Vinegar

    A water and vinegar solution can be helpful to prevent itchy ears. Dr. William H. Blahd on WebMD recommends a natural remedy to treat itchy ears. Mix one part white vinegar with one part water. Make sure the solution is at body temperature. Using a bulb syringe, gently rinse your ear. and many more remedies you can find online..
