2 doctors agree

In brief: Ear dermatitis /numb

Is it just dermatitis (eczema) or psoriasis? and though not the usual rash make sure with numbness it is not lyme disease.
Sometimes get scalp dermatitis from food allergies , so may do elimination diet off dairy x 14 days then off gluten x 14 and see if a difference. Would follow up with dermatologist
