I had distorted hearing in one of my ears, ear ache, occasionally itchy, and drainage into my nose. Is it possible it's an ear infection?

Cannot diagnose: Without seeing you and examining you it is impossible to say what is going on. It is certainly possible that you have an ear infection, but in addition to an exam would need a full history before being able to make a diagnosis. Go and be seen. Read more

My son has a itchy rash that is hotto the touch on his ccheeks ears neck back and tummy. It came on suddenly, what could it be?

My son has a itchy rash that is hotto the touch on his ccheeks ears neck back and tummy. It came on suddenly, what could it be?

M.D. visit: There are a number of possible causes of his rash. The sudden nature without other symptoms makes a reaction or contact with a triggering agent more likely. If there is associated fever, cold symptoms, then viral and other infectious causes may be the reason for his symptoms. His age and immunization status is important information to provide as well. I would suggest a visit with your physician. Read more

Perioral dermatitis: Perioral dermatitis vs Ezcema. Excema would be treated with moisturizer and topical steroids, for perioral dermatitis, these are not helpful and would worsen the condition. Sounds most like perioral dermatitis. Things to try: reduce products, they clog and worsen the condition. Regularly cleanse. Try to touch your face less often. If no better, see a Dermatologist, or a doctor with expertise. Read more

What can I do about a crusty, itchy rash (?) in my ear canal? I read somewhere that the bacteria inside the ear is different than outside on your body.

What can I do about a crusty, itchy rash (?) in my ear canal? I read somewhere that the bacteria inside the ear is different than outside on your body.

Dry skin: Like the rest of the body surface, the skin in the ear canals can get dry, crusty and intensely itchy. I often recommend putting a drop of vegetable oil into the canals about 2x/wk to moisturize the skin. I agree that an infection may also be possible but it would not respond to the application of oil in the ear canals. Read more

I have a severe ear pain / ear ache on the right side plus a headache (or migraine) on the right side as well. My right eye is a bit watery &itchy too?

A little complex: Let's start with the ear pain, which might be a nervus intermedius neuralgia, but the focal issues could be a TMJ process. Eye problems of this sort can be associated with cluster headaches, but all of this does not fit neatly. Are you near a very experienced neurologist or otolaryngologist, as this needs to be evaluated and specified so we can fix it. Read more

Eosinophilic rashes: A variety of diseases can cause diffused skin rashes with eosinophilic infiltration including those mentioned in previous answers. However it seems like it affects both skin and mucus membrane and it is very diffused. Hypereosinophilic syndrome is a concern. Either an allergist, dermatologist, or hematologist can help you in this case. Read more
