Doctor insights on:
Ears: Don't get a full view view of your ears with the photo. As an auricular acupuncturist - I deal with ears a lot. There is so much variation in people's external ears. I would encourage you to learn to love yourself and to appreciate your uniqueness. Although different types of ear plastic surgery are done, I would be very doubtful that this would be covered by Britain's Universal Health care. > ...Read more

I never noticed it before but my 5 month old son has these red almost blister like bumps behind his ear. He skin around is a little dry. I have a picture of you need it?
Hello. I have for several years been buzzing in the ear. I recently did an MRI. Pictures did not show anything.
That's good!: Yevgeny, you have something called Tinnitus. Be glad your MRI shows nothing, so it is almost certainly not a brain tumor. You might want to see an otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose Throat specialist) though to get other ideas and see if anything can be done and to follow you if it should get worse. Many people have this for life though. Good luck! ...Read more

How can you tell between seborrheic dermatitis and eczema? Pictures online make me believe it's one or the other. Effected - r. eyelid/r. behind ear.
Disease are "similar": but have very DIFFERENT causes and LOCATIONS all of which allow the trained DERMATOLOGIST to distinguish the two. The "appearance" "ONLINE" is NOT helpful in making that diagnosis!!!!

It would be best to have it checked out, but it is not an emergency. ...Read more

This does require additional radiation exposure for the scans, something that one should keep to a minimum. For many, benefits outweigh the risk. ...Read more
