I have a burning, itchy red rash behind ears. Should I be concerned?

Seborrhea

Open-uri20130917-24229-1u75m5f
Usually seborrheic dermatitis, which is also the cause of dandruff. You can use Hydrocortisone 1% cream on it three times a day. Be seen if not better.

I have seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp & ears. I've also been having issues with dry, flaky, peeling, itchy, irritated, sometimes red and burning skin in butt crack.

Seb derm areas

Seborrhea
Seborrheic dermatitis can affect the scalp, face, chest, back, underarms, groin and lower abdomen, and the fold between the buttocks. Psoriasis can do the same thing. In mild cases of both treatments are similar. Care must be taken not to use steroid creams in body folds for prolonged periods of time as they can thin the skin and cause other damage.

My neck lymph nodes are in sizes 12*6 & 12*7 and I have itchy skin & some pain in neck&ear& burning tongue,an ENT dr gave me Metronidazole, why?

Swollen lymph

Skin
You may have an infection and that is why you have the other symptoms you mentioned. Without seeing that would be my opinion as to why the metronidazole as it is medication used particularly for anaerobic bacteria and protozoa

My Wife has burning itchy sensation all over her body in her ear and down by her crouch area for the past week. What's the cause and some solutions?

Doctor can evaluate

Open-uri20121008-10499-z9q6hi
Itching all over can be due to an allergic or irritant reaction to some medicine, food, virus, soap, etc... A primary care doctor can evaluate. Sometimes, the doctor will order some blood tests to check the liver, kidneys, and other organs, if there is unexplained itching. Uncommon, but possible, is overall itching due to getting parasites, such as after foreign travel.

I have slight redness in ear canal, itchy in ear canal, slight dulled earing, slight pain in canal, blocks up with fluid when I wake up in the morning?

You have

just described eustachian tube dysfunction fairly well. If OTC antihistamines and decongestants, and smoking cessation don't improve your symptoms within a few days consult your doctor. Don't put anything in your ear canal unless instructed by your doctor.

Does oxymetazoline eye drops help with burning, itchy eyes, or only to remove redness?

Anti-allergic

Pruritis
This is an anti-histamine which has some degree of effectiveness (it used to be a prescription only item). It will help with burning and itching that is of allergic origin. Any redness removed will be due to the anti-allergic effectiveness.

Yeast

Vaginal itching without discharge can indicate infections like yeast or STIs like herpes. It can indicate an allergic reaction to household products like certain soaps and laundry detergents. There are also some skin conditions liked lichen sclerosis which can cause vaginal itching. Start with an over the counter yeast cream. If not improving schedule a visit
