Ear infection
When your ear feels 'full' or itchy, you might have an ear infection. This means that the skin of your outer ear canal (the tube that leads from the bit of the ear you can see, down to your eardrum) has become inflamed and swollen. Sometimes the ear can get affected because water enters your ear canal also if the ear canal gets damp also if the skin of the ear canal gets damaged. Most ear infections can be treated quickly and slow little sign before they come.
Eczema is a term for a group of medical conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed or irritated. No matter which part of the skin is affected, eczema is almost always itchy. Sometimes the itching will start before a rash appears, but when it does a rash most commonly occurs on the face, knees, hands or feet. It may affect other areas as well. Affected areas usually appear very dry, thickened or scaly. In fair-skinned people these areas may initially appear reddish and then turn brown. Among darker-skinned people eczema can affect pigmentation, making the affected area lighter or darker. Treatment for eczema is to try and prevent itching, there are over the counter reams which can be bought within our store. Also antihistamines can be used to reduce severe itching, tar treatments (chemicals designed to reduce itching), phototherapy (therapy using ultraviolet light applied to the skin) and the drug cyclosporine for people whose condition doesn't respond to other treatments.
