my son is 21 months old and his earlobe always has cuts, why? there r cuts where the earlobe touches the face. the back side of the ear becomes rough because of some secretion and also there are some red spots on the earlobe. he even keeps rubbing his earlobe a lot.
These are signs of atopic dermatitis, a form of skin allergy. You can start using Cetaphil bathing bar and Cetaphil moisturising skin cream for it now, and see his pediatrician as soon as feasible. Dr. Taher
