Humidity: Buy a warm must humidifier and keep it next to ur bed every night. Costco has a good brand. Stop drinking soda and ice cold drinks after dark. Take warm / hot water baths before bed. Drink Chicken soup 2-3 times a day. See an allergist and find out what u r allergic to. If you can take curcumin which helps to modulate ur immunity, it could help ur allergies. Also eat at least 3 hrs before bedtime. ...Read more

Got my hair relaxed yesterday & I got a quater sized ozzing burn on my ear. Tried bacitracin zinc but it really hurts and itches. How long til it heals?

Irritant dermatitis.: I assume the hairdresser spilled some of the relaxing chemical on your ear - which gives you an idea of how strong that stuff is! Bacitracin is not going to get it done; a steroid cream, if you have one, might help somewhat, and hold a washcloth soaked in warm water to the area in the evening, perhaps while you're watching tv. If it's not markedly better in a few days, let your doctor take a look. ...Read more

Allergies: This sounds like you have some allergies. Dust in homes can be tainted with lead dust, cockroach dander, pet dander, cigarrette smoke, among other toxins and allergic offenders.
