Does anyone else have psoriasis behind their ears?

Does anyone else have psoriasis behind their ears?

  1. Hi , I don't currently have psoriasis behind my ears but I had it there quite badly when I was younger - both on the skin behind the ear and along where the ear meets the head. This area can get super painful and sensitive. Are you trying any treatments at the moment? -Catherine, Community Moderator

    1. There are certainly cases of that. Luckily, I have not at the moment.

  2. I do besides washing with a skin- friendly cleasner, I itch help!!!!

    1. , it's such an uncomfortable place to have psoriasis isn't it? Have you been given any topicals to apply? I found Dovonex scalp solution (calcipotriene topical solution) really helpful - once I was done applying it to my scalp I would rub any excess around my ears. I have heard others say they use coconut oil and Vicks on this area, although I haven't tried these myself. We have the following article on itch-relief, which I thought may be helpful: https://plaquepsoriasis.com/living/quick-tips-psoriasis-itch-relief Let us know if you find anything that helps! -Catherine, Community Moderator

  3. Thanks for the advice, I will find out

    1. I do. What I find most painful is wearing my glasses when I have a flare… I’ve tried many different things for it but the best I’ve found is using Clobetasol Propionate 0.05% cream twice a day. You don’t need much, just enough to lightly cover the area with the psoriasis flare.
      Unfortunately I also have it on the majority of my scalp and in the ear canals. For those I use the same stuff but it’s the 0.05% solution instead of the cream.
