Hi all!
I have been to this site a few times to read,and I am sorry you all hurt (cry).......but so happy to see a site like this so we can get help.
ok, back to my problem,for a few years I have been itching behind my ears,I scratch so much that it leaves scaly skin,that I can actually peel off.
This is driving me nuts,to put it mildly.

I started using Triamcinolone Acetonide a few days ago and it is not helping the itch.
I do have a red,bumpy rash around the neck line on the back of my neck,but that does not itch as much as my ears,my ears do not have bumps on them.
I have used about every over the counter medicine and lotion that is available and none of it helps.Everyday I itch and I could rip my ears off,because of the itching!
Thank you for your time,and wishing you guys wellness!
I will be checking back here to see if anyone has answers for me.
