Thank you for your query.

1. It would help if you could share a close up image of the rash.

2. You should consult an ENT Specialist who can examine the ear canal, ear drum and a Skin Specialist who can rule out Herpes Zoster, allergy, eczema, contact seborrhoeic dermatitis, measles, heat rash and fungal infection.

3. The redness and warmth is a sign of inflammation or active infection.

4. Do you wear spectacles (glasses)? Do you wear any ear jewellery? Have you used any new, soap, shampoo,hair oil, cosmetic recently? Do you have any Scalp infection or dandruff? Is it a heat rash?

5. A course of antibiotics, anti-allergics , anti inflammatory agents and local combination creams sch as Betnovate GM will help clear up any local infection

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
