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
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 2 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.
