I meant the scalp on both sides above the ears are so very itchy. Both top outside of my ears feels swollen and feels so itchy and burning like sensation. Very warm to touch.

Hello
What is your question?
Without the test, then it is hard to say
Do you have a picture?
If there is no rash, this is not a skin problem, and is more likely to be a systemic illness.
If you have more information, a question, and pictures, let me know.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

My scalp, i looked its very red and flaky so are the top outside of my ears. I touched my ears and they are very warm. The itchiness bothers me more than anything, up to the point I cant function at work. I work at a hospital and with gloves, etc, environment , it gets worse. what can I buy over the counter? Cream etc. i cant take antihistamine bc im doing skin testing on monday, so i cant take antihistamine 3 days before my appt.
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago
What you use needs to be based on your skin testing.
If this is seborrhea, then nizorol shampoo...prescription.
There is an over the counter version.
If it is eczema, then you need a prescription steroid.
So, it depends on the findings.

Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago
There is a nizoral over the counter.
I can not recommend a treatment, as there is no diagnosis.
We do not treat on line.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
