Hi, Thanks for contacting HCM You have history of severe otitis externa . For this disease better to avoid water, oil and ear bud in the external auditory canal and investigate for DM . Put neosporin H ear drop 2 drops three times a day for 7 days.
you should check whether you have dandruff in your scalp or not because the source I think lies there. you should wash your scalp twice per week applying topical itroconazole lotion, massaging and forming lather like shampoo keeping for ten minutes and then wash. This will reduce your scalp dandruff and hence your ear will also see remarkable improvement. Take an anti histamine at night and apply some topical antifungal cream in combination with mild steroid like miconazole plus hydrocortisone daily at night for reduction of itchy and scaly ear.
