Hi, sorry to be asking yet another ear question, but I gotta know. Yesterday about mid day, I noticed that my ears were itching like crazy. Not the inside, but the outside tops. During the day they got redder until they were almost purple, and they became severely painful. I put on some Gold Bond before bed and had some trouble sleeping. When I got up this morning, my ears were both purple, intensely hot and extremely painful. The funny thing is there is a definite line where the red stops and the normal color starts. The fleshy part at the bottom of the ear is not affected one bit. Have any of you experienced anything like this or know if this is related to mctd? Oh, I also took an antihistmine thinking it was an allergy. It did not help at all!
