Am having dandruff and ear itch for several years now.
Feel they are related.
If I do not wash my hair, small flaks of dry skin forms on my scalp causing it to itch and similarly when I itch my ears, small pieces of dry skin appears.

Also my left heel is full of hardened cartilage, full of dry skin... once the medical clinic scraps it with a knife only to appear again..... seems to have no solution to this problem....

I sense that I have problem of regeneration of excess cartilage/skin .... is there any remedy for this??

  • I also have had this problem with "ear flakes" from what I assume is dryness in the ears...Try some over-the-counter 1% hydrocortisone cream/ointment, which will stop the itch and provide moisturizer to prevent the dry skin from forming and flaking...google "ear flakes" and "dry ears" for other remedies.
