Hello dr
No theres no redness or discharge, the itchyness is on the outside of ear near the canal but the floopy bit of the ear
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 3 years ago
Thank you for the input.
This can be from an irritation of ear.
This can occur from wax, allergy.
You can watch whether any wax is visible there.
For allergy, you can give zyrtec.
It would help with itching.
If there develops any redness, discharge, I would advise to get him an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating.
Wish him healthy life.

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.
