Are red, itchy and burny. I haven't used any new products so that can't be it. I don't have piercings. Well, I had pierced ears as a kid but I haven't worn earrings in like 20 years or so so no new jewelry either. I have tried diphenhydramine, loratadine, atenolol, hydrocortisone cream, tea tree oil.. nothing works. Only thing that gives me relief from the itching is Benadryl cream. WTF? How long should I go through this before I call a doctor? Anyone dealt with it?
