Eczema in ears and repeated infections.


I have had repeated ear infections for the past 3 years. Went to countless doctor visits and have taken different meds: amoxxicylin pills, antibiotic ear drops, and some natural remedies: witchhazel.
It went away for a while but always returned.

At the same time I developed an ear infection I got eczema in my ears. It seemed to be related to the ear drops I was taking at the time that caused a fizzing sound in my ears and made my ears irritated, burny, and my skin started to peel. When I saw the doctor she said it was eczema. So I recieved a cream to place in my ears. My ears started to produce a lot of liquid and I would begin to collect it out with my fingers, since this was a regular occurence and it was blocking my hearing. This past year I had an ear infection with a fungus and bacteria infection. Now, my ears are blocked and hurting. I've had enough of going to doctors bc I know what they will say: heres some meds... blah, blah, blah. and then the same symptoms reappear.

I have a feeling the reason I have ear infections is because of the irritating eczema that causes me to scratch my ears at night and peel out the excess skin that is falling out and blocking my hearing.

What to do? Any advice?
I will be seeing a doctor to check for infections. But what to do about this eczema?? I can't take it anymore.
I can't hear and it really bothers me.

Irritable, calm, depressed. It varies.
My relations right now with close relatives are quite bad.
A lot of fighting and stress.
cause? I answered this one above. Eczema irritation and itching/scratching my ears results in infection. Eczema resulted from ear drops irritation.
phys symptoms: itchy ears inside, flaking of skin, static sound in ear, ear blocked hearing by excess skin accumulation.
other symptoms: frequent dehydration, migrations.
i like cold and warm. can't decide. I don't enjoy very hot weather or very cold. I prefer in-between. Like after it rains on a spring day.
I feel best early evening and early morning.
My sleep is irregular because of bad habit.
I sweat more than usual. armpits.
I'm always thirsty but not very aware of it or used to drinking often.
The complaints are the same regardless of motion/stillness.
Bowel is normal. Digestion is very strong, I'm usually running for the restroom soon after eating.
I'm not active sexually, so no. :)
Not sure how i'd characterize my menstraul cycle.
4 days long.
lots of physical discomfort and intense mental upset: crying, the works.
excessive flow at first then very minimal.
thick bright red at first and then a bit more pale.
yes, clots!
Lots of questions: TMI. :)

Please take three doses of Sepia 200c at a gap of 4 hours for only one day (not daily) and report back after 15 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

I am having similar symptoms. My left ear was diagnosed with eczema almost 3 years ago after having ear infections. The infections have gone away but the eczema will not. I have to go to the doctor several times a year for cleaning due to skin flaking and it is accumulating in my ear, resulting in irritated and extremely itchy ears.
