I am a 25 year old male. for about 8 months now i have had an itching/burning sensation by and around my ears, primarily by my sideburns and temple. it has slowly progressed. if i don't apply moisturizer to it after i shower, my skin then becomes extremely dry in these areas. the itchy/burning sensation will increase if i begin to sweat. i have no clue what it is. i do not have any history of allergies. i occasionally smoke cigars/marijuana, and thought it could be the smoke that is causing the dryness of my skin in those areas. any ideas???
