chronic ear canal skin infection
Hello, Help!
The skin inside my ears (as in, I have to dig inside my ears to scratch it) is chronically infected as of the past 10-15 years. It goes from itchy, to scabby (white scabs, unless they're really bad, then some red scabs and bleeding) puss and clear fluid fills the ears if I peel out the scabs, and the progression starts all over again.  "Not itching" them is impossible, though I recognize it makes the problem worse.  When I clean them (salt water or running warm water in them in shower), and they dry up and improve, they start itching most of all!  No creams have ever worked.  What can I do?  I worry about future cancer etc with this chronic severe irritation.  I have had excema in the distant past but have none anywhere else now.
