My mom has a horrible ear infection and refuses to go to the doctor. Both ears are swollen, very flaky & itchy inside,
yellowish / brown or black gooey discharge. She also gets a powdery black discharge. Her outer ears, sides of face & neck turn dark redish/purple. She is now experiencing the same redish /purple color at the base of her skull & it is very tender to the touch. Please help!!!

  • I have to tell you she needs to go see an ENT doctor. I have spent my life with chronic ear problems. Not to scare you but I have had 3 crainotomies because of my ear problems.
