My sister has exzema in her ears and it can be painful at times. See a doctor. There are medications that can be given if severe. Sometimes water can inflame it. My sister cannot get water in her ears she has to wear cotton when showering (she is 23) when water gets in, it makes it spread.


I have heard Aveeno products work well.

We have used Lavender, Shea Butter, goat milk soap , Burt's Bees Aloe and something else lotion, Udder Balm and we want to try to use raw honey as well because it has healing properties. The Burt's Bees lotion and Udder Balm seem to be working the best for our daughter for some reason.

A dermatologist may prescribe something but we wanted to use natural products so we are using the process of elimination through trial and error.

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
