Hi, Mary, I know you are frustrated, but many of the measures you took are dangerous, such as using water irrigation and alcohol. Please don't do that again. Currently your hearing difficulty is more serious than the eczema. You should see an otolaryngologist to get antibiotics and other measures to salvage your hearing. The eczema thing can be managed by a dermatologist. BTW, I am wondering whether the diagnosis of eczema is right. A lot of measures are ineffective. Is it possible that it is a different condition, such as fungal infection?
