So ive had this problem for about a year, and the doctor had no idea what it was, and told me to go to a dermatologists, but i have no insurance anymore. Anyway its like behind my ear, and behind my ear lobe on the upper side of my neck. Its itches behind both ears but mostly the left.Theres no bumps or anything, it isnt ringworm or scabies, no real sign of irritation, any idea what it could be? I dont think its heat rash or dry skin because that usually goes away right? This has never really gone away.I tried the cream thats used to cure ringworm for about 5 - 8 weeks and it didnt help.
Itching behind the ear
I assumed you've had a good look in a mirror and seen no redness?Sometimes a nerve can get turned on for no reason, which is a nuisance.
Itchy redness behind the EAR-saw symptoms/cause mentioned in behind-the-counter popular comprehensive alternative health manual in a health food store as I casually flipped through - cause noted was unusual - may have been adrenal gland symptom (which would recommend an endocrineologist, rather than a dermatologist). Will come back when I locate the book which I subsequently purchased for other reasons. It might be of help, even if nominating one cause only. Keep in mind my memory as to the cause is unreliable. I need to look for the book, as I have looked unsuccessfully in other books for this unusual symptom as a nurse, in other health books.
