My DD has had a red, rashy, crusty patch on her outer ear up the top in the folds (no idea what it's called).
She had it for 5 weeks and I was putting pawpaw on it, didn't help really. Took her to gp who said put olive oil on it, done that for a week and it got worse so pharmacist gave me DermAid 0.5% which worked then came back after I stopped.
Anyway I then started using Aveeno moisture cream as I read that it worked for eczema and it's been helping heaps but this morning she's woken up with thick crusty ear wax? I'm hoping cream didn't get in there and I'm sure it didn't but any ideas on what's going on?
I'm going to try take her back to gp today.
ETA: I know dermaid is hydrocortisone and I really didn't want to use it and I also hate johnsons products too and know Aveeno is johnsons but I can't stand to see my DD in pain anymore.

Stupid question I guess but it's not coming from the actual ear is it? Saying that she's got thick crusty wax? I panic about it cos my ds has ear trouble and had grommets when he was 18 months..
