If you have eczema you may often suffer from flaky or dry skin in the ear canals, although many people that suffer from sensitive skin may find that they also fall victim to the wrath of dry skin in ears or even on top or at the back of the ear.
This type of dry skin surprisingly quite common but why? And are there any risks involved with this type of dry, flaky and sometimes painful skin?
How can we treat it simply and effectively?
Dry Skin in Ears
Suffering from dry skin within the ears is by no means a particularly bad, or rare, condition to contend with.
If dry skin is quite persistent within your ears it is highly likely to actually be seborrheic dermatitis, an inflammation of the skin that is fairly common and relatively harmless.
It has the appearance of itchy, flaky, almost scaly dry skin, so is quite easily ignored or disregarded by the sufferer who will just think of it as annoying dry skin. Which it kind of is really, but it is important to be aware of the potential risks that come with it…
Are there any Dangers of this?
Generally speaking, dry skin within the ears is just an annoying yet harmless condition.
However, sometimes it can lead to a bacterial infection. This is indicated when the skin turns wet and itchy, sometimes with pain and a foul odour. This may then spread to the face and cause red sores. Not particularly pleasant!
People that suffer from dry skin in their ears are also likely to suffer from dry skin on other parts of the body including the scalp, face, chest, neck, back and even the groin areas.
So, while this type of dry skin is usually nothing to worry about, it is certainly worth treating just to be on the safe side.
