What causes itchy ears and tinnitus?

Hello Drs, I have been dealing with hair/scalp & ear condition for some time. Originally told it was lice. Used over counter lice product+ natural products rosemary, tea tree & other type shampoos,& finannly Dr prescribed shampoo that could use in ear too. My sister dutifully came to my house for 10 days but only found white flakes from combing hair. I remember seeing large yellow flakes with red dots when rinsing shampoo in sink. Dr says nothing in ears, yet feels itchy & really hurts at times & now have tinnitus off & on both ears. Have crunchy white crystal type substance dug out of outer ear & inside that has traveled farther into ear. It won t go sway! Scalp itchy at times & scalp cristalization in patches all over, seems to me it is a in or under skin. Also loosing hair. One time a clear blob was captured on lice comb, which I placed on back of paper. As it dried it opened up & tendrils of an octopus reached out. Broke apart once dried. . Should have taken a picture. I wash hair daily. Spread to left side of face whinc now rystallized too. Driving me batty. Have an ideas?

You have to go to a dermatologist and get a microscopic examination done. It could be tarnish of the scalp and its spreading so fast. It could be an eczema also .
