Hi,
How are you? Dry flaky skin in the outer ear may be caused by infection or skin conditions such as seborrhoeic eczema. Try to avoid scratching and cleaning the ear frequently to prevent secondary bacterial infection. If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper management. A referral to an ENT doctor may also be beneficial. Take care and do keep us posted.
