Caption

Otitis externa. Close-up of the ear of an elderly male patient suffering from non-infectious otitis externa. Both the ear canal and pinna (external ear) are affected with scaly skin. Otitis externa can be caused by both fungal and bacterial infections and is more common in swimmers ("swimmer's ear"). Sometimes the ear becomes inflamed as part of a generalized skin disorder, such as atopic eczema and seborrhoeic dermatitis. Symptoms may include itching, pain, a discharge of pus from the ear canal, and temporary deafness. Treatment may include antibiotic drugs, antifungal drugs, or corticosteroid drugs.
