I have very itchy scabby dry skin in my both of my external ear canals and red dry skin on my eyelids for a while now. I put lotion on and it does nothing for me. It's so itchy that i scratch so much to relieve the itch to the point of bleeding. I have not been able to find a good lotion to help me with it. Does anyone know what the problem could be and what i need to use or do to help it go away?
