Itchy, Pusing Right Ear

So here's the story -

About 2 weeks ago, I had decided to dye my hair. I had suffered a pretty bad allergic reaction to it (head and ears swelled up, chemical burns on ear, neck hands, legs, etc, ears and scalp were pusing a lot.) Within an hour after coming back from the hospital, my head stopped producing pus and after a few days on some steroids, my head and ears went down.

My only problem now is that my right ear is still producing pus on the outside rim and both ears are still incredibly itchy. (I've also developed red, itchy welts on the back of my neck, but that's a whole 'nother forum.)

What could I do to heal up the skin on my ear to stop the pus? How long should I wait before I see a ear, nose and throat doctor because it wont heal? (What should I do about the welts on my neck?)

Thank you!

I would be trying to see a physician ASAP, preferably an Allergist or a Dermatologist, not an ENT specialist.

Keep us posted;all the best!
