Itching on the ear lobes, cheeks. Not responding to steroid pills
Last week my right earlobe started itching very badly. It was a little bit on my right cheek too, so I went to a Walgreens Clinic and they gave me some steroid pills to take for the itchiness. My right earlobe cleared up, but my right cheek still is kind of itchy and it is now on my left earlobe. I haven t changed shampoo, face wash, detergent. Please help! The itchiness is driving me crazy!
Hello.Please check if you have sunlight induce allergy.A good sunscreen would be required.You also would require pills to control the itching.If nothing goes right, a skin biopsy from the affected area would be required.
