Hi, I'm 27 years old female and I started suffering from ear itches 2 months ago.
My doctor identified it as some form of otitis and gave me drops with antibiotics and cortisone. It worked for 2 weeks and then the problem reappeared. The ENT specialist find an eczema caused probably by some kind of allergy and prescribed me Elocon drops.
After the first application things get worse and now I have a swollen and plugged ear, pain and burn.
I personally think my problem is the headset I have to use for work, this problem started exactly when I old one broke and bought a new one. In the new headphones there may be nickel? I have to go to the allergologist but this will take time and I can't stop using the headphones.
now I really need a new hypoallergenic headphones + microphone, anyone have any suggestion?
