What do you suggest for dry skin problem on the outer ear?
My outer ear has been hurting for a couple days now. It feels like there’s little patches of dry skin but I try to get a better look at it and it’s starts burning when I touch it. I’ve always had dry skin but this has only happened for a few days now
It seems to be inflammation. I would recommend you to apply topical steroid and antibiotic creams like Neosporin ointment and cortisone cream on the affected areas twice daily for 7-10 days. This should improve your condition.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
