Itch, coping, treatment
Have you ever had psoriasis in your ears? What helps?
Please don't include specific medical product brand names or external links.
06 Jun 15:32
Yes I have. I used to use Vaseline to loosen the flakes. Then I'd take a damp wash cloth and wipe them out.
06 Jun 15:34
In the U.K. We have an old fashioned cream called Astral that's worked for me before. I also use Vaseline or sudocrem.
06 Jun 15:53
yes,anything oily helps me.
06 Jun 16:08
Yes, I put an oily cream on before I bath or shower. Afterwards I rub it off while I dry myself
06 Jun 16:14
yes and at the seam of where the ear joins,can crack and bleed :)
06 Jun 16:25
A liitle bit of 50/50 at bedtime helps AND you dont hear your partner snoring
06 Jun 16:41
Not me but I feel for anyone who has☹️
06 Jun 16:45
Coconut oil works for me :-)
06 Jun 16:48
a lottery win will work for me for sure,no stress,worries, nice holidays in the sun all year round,i would be livin the dreeaaam :)
06 Jun 16:54
Yes i have, nothing i have cream (sudocrem) still itches and often i feel dead skin and pick
06 Jun 17:14
I've found Betnovate lotion on a cotton bud helps with the outer ear but just have to suffer if it is further in.
06 Jun 17:25
It's a constant problem for me & incredibly distracting. Olive oil applied, gently, with a cotton bud is what my dermatologist recommended ... sometimes it helps sometimes it doesn't. It's as bad as the itch on the left foot I no longer have after a below knee ampution in 2013.
You can get olive oil on prescription for psoriasis treatment. I have to use warm olive oil on my scalp daily/every other day to keep down scalp scaling.
06 Jun 17:31
Yes and badly, I can't use my hearing aid as it pushes the flakes deeper into my ear :'(
06 Jun 17:51
OMG!!!! I just recently started to feel dry patches around my one ear. so freaking aggravated with this whole psoriasis. ugh now I just let my hair drape down and cover my ear, like my personal curtain.
06 Jun 17:56
I do! I use coconut oil when I go to bed, then you can pick the skin off in the morning 😱😂
06 Jun 18:02
Guys can i just say i am chuffed to little mint balls i found this site. I really thought i was alone with this and its nice to be able to chat about skin peeling off ears in the morning@wifeylewis1 🙋 After my dr said well your in your 30's your stuck with it you can imagine why was left if my self esteem vanished
06 Jun 18:04
And when i say nice i mean its open speaking where nobody is repulsed by what we as the p society deal with, they just say stop scratching and put some cream on 🖕🖕🖕
06 Jun 19:12
i use ISO-UREA MD lotion ( La Roche-Posey) its a lotion for psoriasis skin and its helps
06 Jun 21:25
Hi. I do in the ears and behind them I have a cream that the dr prescribed
06 Jun 21:53
The doctor prescribed Fluocinonide USP, 0.05% cream for my elbows, knees, and ears for my psoriasis in those areas. So far it really helps me!
06 Jun 22:01
I have. Every day I use nivea cream, in sos bonalfa.
06 Jun 22:25
06 Jun 22:27
yea iv got it bad in one ear,it makes my hearing aid whistle all the time. so i starting using otomize as suggested on here. it works for me.
06 Jun 23:01
Yes I use CeraVe lotion. I have also been taking Moringa and having great success.
06 Jun 23:17
I use an exfoliating sponge, then coat with Vaseline. I also have it on my eyelids...I can wear make-up anymore.
07 Jun 02:25
I had psoriasis in my ears when I was around 14 years old. The ear specialists were not able to figure it out, till I ended up at a dermatologist's office. Got cream for it, do not remember what it was, it is 58 years ago... I guess it was the regular psoriasis cream of those days! Very irritating though to have it in the ears.
07 Jun 05:22
Yes, I just scrub them during bath/shower, then use diaper rash ointment & it helps, also helps on other spots too
07 Jun 06:17
I find that a scalp solution works the best. It's not oil based nor does it stain.
07 Jun 06:58
hello chris yes agreed, some do feel sorry for themselves and pour out their anxiety etc but, its a place where people can listen to each other and know they are not alone and thats it i feel,feeling sorry for myself does nothing for me,trying to help myself does but, its a choice a choice for everyone :)
07 Jun 09:19
yes and still do i found the best thing to use is cetraban as you can also shower or bath with it put a tiny bit on a cotton bud and gently wipe round your ears
07 Jun 12:24
Chris I'm slightly shocked at that post? This is a place from what I see so far that people can share and help each other, whether it's finding that golden solution or just having a moan to release the anxiety. I am sorry but I don't feel it is your place to suggest people are just maybe feeling sorry for themselves

Dream cream is good
07 Jun 14:29
Hi Gary, What is dream cream as my scalp is completely covered in p at the minute, so will give anything a go!
07 Jun 14:54
Most of my life. steroid creams work for a while but not a good solution long term. I'm trying coconut oil based on comments below.
07 Jun 15:35
Dream cream is all natural no steroids its good over time..
07 Jun 16:15
@gulagger where can i get this cream?
07 Jun 17:01

08 Jun 07:45
Give me a good, lotion for my skin
08 Jun 08:27
I have and it's very embarrassing when you have to go to the hairdressers. I'm tried cocnut oil and sudocream never worked
08 Jun 17:12
i have psoriasis in my ears i use salcura bioskin i moisturises the dead skin cells so they can be removed with a cotton wool pad. once they have been removed use it to keep the skin moist . every three months i go to my local hearing centre and get them to check and clean my ears out.
08 Jun 19:12
Behind my ears is the worst. The cracks and bleeding burn.
09 Jun 17:40
Yes I have it in my ear. I have to use olive oil drops every day.
09 Jun 19:33
I get in the ears now and then I use a bit of protopic 0.1%ointment
09 Jun 23:43
Let me know if you have a remedy for poriases in the ears--I have it too and in my nose and eyes too1 Lorna
10 Jun 00:03
I have it on head and ears can't imagine what it's like in eyes so sorry to hear x
10 Jun 07:52
Yes,very little helps but coconut oil helps some. Cant use hearing aids because of scaling
12 Jun 15:24
Yes, man times. Try not to pick at it, not only do you block your ear but you can cause infection. If you want healthy try almond or olive oil, otherwise ointment from the chemist.
13 Jun 18:57
Yes I had but it disappeared.
13 Jun 21:16
Not having to listen to my hubbie, i get deaf as a post.
13 Jun 22:04
I have psoriasis in both ears. I swab them with a low dose topical steroid cream using a Q-tip. This works well for me.
19 Jun 04:02
yes, my hearing power was 80% gone, but my ENT doctor very carefully cleaned the area inside my ear, which was totally plugged and all is well again.
