I have read previously of a link to PBC of itching of the ear and this is what I have put it down to. I suffer intermittently with this problem so I suppose I am fortunate in a way that it does not happen all the time (every 3/4 months).... I don't get itching any where else. I get severe itching inside the ear and at the entrance to my ear. I have put it down to PBC and not to any sort of ear infection as I do not get any earache or discharge. Previously I have managed to cope by using a little cod liver oil on a cotton bud and just smearing it around the entrance and outside of my ear and normally after about a week it settles down. This time however that hasn't worked, its gone on now for nearly 3 weeks and its driving me absolutely crazy. If I could get my hand inside my ear I would ....the itching is that bad. The entrance is really sore, cracked and has started to bleed.
Has anyone else experienced this as I am wondering if I am right to think it is related to the PBC or could it be something else so I would be grateful for any comments/advise please.
