I have a very ichy ear at night when I'm lying on my side…

Customer Question
I have a very...

I have a very ichy ear at night when I'm lying on my side only. It usually occurs after a couple of minutes. It's the ear facing up. It has been going on for a while but only recently turned into every night.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?

For months...since having my son, 4 years ago, I get some dry skin patches on the palms of my hands. I have adult acne (pretty mild and occurs with hormonal changes)

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of

The symptoms you are experiencing are most likely due to otitis externa that is infection of the outer ear which is also called swimmer's ear .The treatment usually include antibiotics but i would recommend you to see your doctor for through examination of your ear with otoscope to confirm the diagnosis and prescription accordingly.

Hope this helps.

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.
