Psoriasis In the ear

Posted Fri 20 Nov 2020 6.14pm by Rachel

I have patches of Psoriasis - a few in the scalp, some on my lower back and tops of legs. I have visited a GP and many of the ointments they gave me did not work. The best one I felt was a Coconut Oil compound. However, recently I believe it is now in my ear. One of my ears is completely blocked. I have been putting Jojoba Oil drops in which relieves the itching, if I don't administer any oil at all the itching is unbearable. Any advice??

Hi Rachel, I have the same problem with my ears. My ears are really sore and itchy inside and my hearing seems to be muffled because of the psoriasis. I was advised by my dermatologist to go and see my GP about my ears to see if I need them syringing to clear them of the build up. In the meantime I was told to use a cotton bud with a little bit of moisturiser and a mild steroid cream just around the entrance of the ear but no further. I hope this helps!

I also get wjhat seems to be psoriasis inside my ears (I have it in many other places).

I use a very thin smear of dovobet steroid applied morning and evening for 1 or possibly 2 days, and it seems to keep it underr control.

I read somewhere (and I have forgotten where it was now, I forgot to save the link) a suggestion to try a hay-fever/ anti allergy spray usually used for the nose.

It is Fluticasone Propionate, I bought it as "Boots Allergy Relief Nasal Spray" . . . . I tried it in my ears instead of the dovobet, and it really helped.
