Hi Anniemaggie……I have been part of this group for quite sometime. Are the ear drops that you use a prescription? Periodically I look for ear drops at the store, but never find any. I have tried a few suggestions that seem to work for some of you, but nothing is working for me. I did get a diagnosis of Chondrodermatitis (CNH) caused from laying on my right side too much, and I do get a pressure sore on my ear. When the sore gets really intolerable, I resort to my very uncomfortable pillow with a hole in the middle. The Sore heals in a few weeks, then I can’t resist sleeping on my very soft reg. pillow to get some more restful sleep. After several weeks, I get the sore again. For other reasons I can only sleep on my right side…..so this is a vicious painful circle. I am 80 years old now, so I know I won’t have many more years to tolerate this problem. Sorry this is a long post.
