      Today I have seen my 4th ENT and I can honestly say that he is really educated in Tinnitus which is a big surprise for me. My itching in left ear(this is where my T is) is actually eczema and he was very surprised the last 3 ENTs have never told me so. He prescribed me ear oil (Econol). I have two questions:
      1) Is this oil ototoxic to ears?
      2) Can ear eczema be a cause of Tinnitus?

      It isn't an answer to your question, but it is known in Menierres disease that inflammation of the middle ear membrane is evident on visualization. Eczema is basically inflammation, but, unless your ENT somehow looked beyond your eardrum you can't know how deep it may go, and from your posts you don't have Menierres anyway. Very unlikely to be anything more than a bit of local inflammation of the external ear canal which would have nothing to do with your tinnitus.

      Thank you guys for the answers. I think it is not related to my T but I think this may show that I'm allergic to something I don"t know. I have never ever eczema before but now I have these both T and eczema thing. What a blessing would it be if I can treat both of them!

      Oh Glynnis....who hasn't? A satisfyingly stained cotton bud is one of the secret small pleasures of life. Sometimes it even feels like a win against the demons of dirt.
