Resolved Question:

I have always had a sour-smelling smell behind my ears even after I shampoo my hair and wash and clean behind my ears. If I rub my fingers behind my ears and smell my fingers, I smell a sour smell.

Hi,
The chat got disconnected. The remedies that you can try are-
  • keep the area behind the ear as clean as possible.
  • apply an OTC antbiotic ointment for 7-10 days
  • avoid eating junk food (junk and oily food can cause this).
  • drink lots of water.
Hope this information helps.
Regards,
Dr. Gupta
