For almost longer than 3 years now I have had dry skin inside both of my ears, and drainage, especially at night. Both the drainage and the "skin" smell almost like an infection. I went to an ENT about 2 years ago and he basically told me I have allergies and to take some nose sprays and daily allergy pills, but it hasn't gotten any better. I even thought maybe it was almost like athletes foot, but in my ears, so I tried some antibacterial ointment in my ears, which seemed to kind of help, but not completely, and also thought it could be dermatitis, but I don't think that's it. I am fine with going back to the doctor if it would mean I get an actual answer, but I can't spend the money, for them to basically write me off again. Any ideas what this could be?
