Question: Weird ear wax type thing


RadCat - Wed Jun 29, 2005 10:48 pm

I noticed all of today that my ears have been forming a weird wax (I think) outside of my left ear (at the bottom of the ear), it sort of feels like bleeding and hurts if I touch it when wet, but it's not visable at all, and isn't blood, and it's like it bleeds all the time, unless if I leave it to dry, and once it is dry, it looks like wax has dried onto my ear.

Starting to annoy me now..

Thanks

Do you have Itching associated with it?

OK, I was thinking excema, you can have it in your ears, too, but it's not. See your doctor, or ENT, because it is definitely not normal.

OK, thanks.

Will make an appointment for tomorrow afternoon. Could you make a guess what it could be? I've guessed it's some sort of infection. I don't mind if your wrong or right, I'd just like to have an idea what it 'possibly' could be.

Cheers.
