Suggest remedies for crease in left ear

default
Posted on Tue, 10 May 2016
Question: I have a crease in my left ear which I know is an indication of heart problems; however, my ear lobe is red and I don't know what to do for it. I just moved to this area and I haven't found a physician yet. I was hoping someone could help me.

Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query very carefully.

Before giving you an adequate suggestion I would like to have a picture of the ear. This will help me to give a more accurate answer and treatment.

Can you please send me a photo of your ear?

Unfortunately, I don't have that ability to do that with my computer its a chrome laptop. I can probably email it from my phone if that would help. I just need to know where to send it.

I forgot to add that I am diabetic but very careful of my diet and insulin injections. Also I just completed a series of 5 injections of halaglyn for my knees.

Hi back,

You may upload the photo to me by email.

From what you are reporting your sign and symptoms seems to be related to skin (ear skin) infection and mycosis.

Meanwhile, If you were my patient I would recommend as follows:
- Do skin culture for mycosis
- Use canesten cream

I'm waiting for the photo to be uploaded!
Wish you health!

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Unfortunately It's not very clear. From what I see it's ear skin damage from earphone contact.

My advice are as follow:
- keep your ear skin clean and dry
- avoid using earphones for 2-4 weeks
- use canesten cream two- three times a day locally

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!
