Are your symptoms only itchy earlobes or red eyes, runny nose, itchy nose, cough and itchy earlobes?
If it is the former (i.e., ear itchy only) then you may wish to consider if this is secondary to metal allergy like earrings or jewellery. Nickel allergy
is quite common that is a hypersensitivity
(delayed rather than immediate) and can last for quite long and flares up on little contact again. Patch test
procedure can diagnose chemical (delayed) hypersensitivities.
If you have all the symptoms, then dust mite or pollen allergy
is more likely. Skin prick or specific IgE (blood test
) can reveal all the allergies but needs to be discussed with a Specialist in Allergy. Combination of oral antihistamines and nasal sprays are required and occasionally leukotriene antagonists for a longer duration of benefit.
