Itchy Ears

I have been sitting here thinking about my itchy ears and telling myself, I need to go to a doctor and find out what is causing it. They drive me nuts !!! I dig around with a bobby pin until they bleed and then scab over and then they itch worse than ever. I was pondering whether I should call an ear doctor, but I know if I call an ear doctor the first question will be, "Do you have a regular doctor?" I want an ear expert, not a regular doctor. Do you think they care if you want an ear expert? They know best, and you have to do as they say. That leads me into another subject, What do they do in Canada when they call a specialist? All you hear on TV is the announcers crying about how our medical care will be as bad as it is in Canada. I can't see that it's so hot here, how could it get much worse. Excuse me while I itch my ear.
Back to my original subject. My ears have itched most of my life so I suppose I could tolerate it another 10 years or so. I decided to google the subject, so I typed in "Why do my ears itch all the time" Oh me ! oh my ! do I ever have company. Please click on this link for more information on itchy ear problems.

Gosh, GL, what a story! At least you've got the name of a medication to go in and ask for and if you don't get it from the dr., try another!

About Canadian medicine: You know how bus loads of Canadians are sneaking across the border to come to the U.S. to buy prescription drugs....oh,'s the other way around. Some media commentators are hell bent on scaring people (including my mother) into believing that society as we know it will end with health care reform. I've tried pointing out that should my youngest, who has no insurance, have a major illness it will bankrupt me, my husband, and his biological father caring for him. That calms her down for a while, but too much FOX News always gets her scared again.

Good luck with the cream. I'd already be on my way to the store for the cortisone!

Fox news doesn't have news reporters, they have biased commentators. Why can't we have a news station that just reports the news and leave their opinions out of it. Yes, I will get the cream ASAP.

To be fair, CNN has gone down hill and I don't watch it either. Any outfit that employs Nancy Grace has lost all credibility. I watch MSNBC and the Daily Show on Fox because they're funny, but listen to BBC to get something that fairly balanced.

Let us hear :-) how your ears are.

They have drops and stuff you can buy over the counter maybe one of those would help? You have probably already tried that.
I think people who complain about health care reform have really good insurance. All I know is that we pay almost $200 a month for Jim to have private insurance and it has a $3000 deductible and does not cover anything, Plus if he gets anything really wrong with him they can just raise his rates so that we can't afford the insurance anymore.
He needs 3 crowns and I just discovered that the dental insurance that i pay for every month only covers one crown every 10 years! I don't think he can wait 20 years to get all his dental work done. Ugg!
sorry insurance is a touchy subject here these days.

Stephanie Frieze said...

You are right about who does and does not like our current system, Cora. Our dental insurance is through my employer and the dental receptionist spreads out appointments to fall into different deductible years as much as possible to make the bill less painful. My husband has an appointment Monday for the initial visit for a crown which he won't get until September, after the "new year" has begun.

I couldn't agree more- thanks for articulating a lot of my own feelings that I just can't get out these days.
