If you can collect the ear fluid bring it to an ENT who can send it for lab resluts to see if it is CSF leaking. Though it should be in a sterile container and I am not sure how long the fluid if it is CSF will hold stable for. But your best bet is to try and collect it.
i totally have the exact thing your talking about w/ the ear eczema... skin, itch, crusting, leaking everthing...omg....i cant take anymore either.....
I don't know if you will read this as your note was posted a little while ago... but I have had the same eczema in my ears for years too. The same itching, scratching and weeping (which is a colourless fluid the same as produced by other types of eczema). I used steroid cream for years too but I also didn't think it was good for my body in general. I have now discovered Aloe Propolis cream... it is totally natural and I pop a little in my ears if they feel dry or itchy. It hasn't cured completely yet... but these things take a while... but it is definitely helping and is something I will continue to use always. If you need a supplier I can recommend one. Best wishes.
hi my mum has this exact thing and i would be very grateful if you would recommend a supplier of the cream tht you mentioned
Hi I had the same itch in my ears and nose. The itch and the clear fluid that leaked out drove me bonkers. I tried numerous creams that were prescribed by my doctor. Nothing worked. Then I went to a different doctor and he recommended a lotion called Ectoson regular 0.1%. BINGO!!!! the eczema in and around my ears and nose is gone. I apply a bit of it to the affected area 1-2 times a day and around 4-6 days my rash was just about gone. I've only been on this stuff for 3 weeks now. I am starting to use less and less to see if the rash comes back. I hope this info helps you people out.
I seem to have similar problem. For several years now I have had greater amounts of wax and occasionally, once a month in each ear fluid leaking for a day. Then fluid stops and firms up like a yellowy wax out of the ear. Now my one ear has gotten worse to the point I have been taking steroid drops to keep it clear as I wait to see specialist. The doctor says wax in the ears or an ear infection that will not go away but this may be a skin ear irritation - I do have rosacia on my face.
Anyone else have similar problem ? What should I use rather then steroid drops ?
