Thank you, 1) I have been having a "crusty" skin

Thank you,
1) I have been having a "crusty" skin irritation on my left ear (just before canal) for the past months. I have used an antiseptic cream and lotion and that cleared the irritation. NOW the same problem has reoccurred, 2) At night, when lying on my left side, there feels like a discharge is coming from my ear, but I have no sign of any when cleaning. 3) the outer corner of my left eye feels like there is an irritation in the eye, I have used eye drops with no change. 4) I have a slight ear ache today.
should I see an ENT?

I have a crusty looking wart that showed up on my stomach . I know that it s I have probably have had it less then a month. I have been worried that it might be some form of skin cancer . I have a scheduled appointment with my dermatologist next week. It s the earliest appointment that I could. Could it be something else besides skin cancer? Thank you!!

hi. thanks for your time. about 3 months ago i started having this crusty stuff on my face, in the creases under my cheeks. it s easily picked off, but then the skin underneath is red. and the crusty stuff comes back. then it started under my nose. first started on one side of my face, then that went away, and it came back on the other side of my face, just in the creases under my cheeks when i smile. i ve tried oregano oil, teatree oil, but it continues to COME BACK!!!! what do you suppose it might be and what can i do about it? thanks SO much!

hiii, see i went to the doctor for this thing on my knuckle which looks like a wart. they froze it various times and they gave me this acid kind of treatment for it. nothing worked so i went to the doctor again and she said that it was a scar or something because the top is flat, and it is red-ish. the skin on it gets really dry and crusty though like a wart, i can just peel off the skin on it sometimes, is it really a scar? and can you tell me more about how to get rid of it?
