    Default Problems with my ears??

    I have a new question for today. (I didn't think to ask the doctor this.) For several years the inside of my ears either get exceptionally dry and itchy or get really moist inside. When they get moist I put drops in that smell like vinegar. I am wondering if this has anything to do with Lupus. Does anybody have any thoughts?

    Not sure if it has to do with lupus but my ears do the very same thing very often. Either dry and itchy or really wet like I just showered. I also get alot of really hard wax buildup (gross I know) that gets stuck in my ear and my doctors always ask if I can hear. I've always had ear issues such as that though so I wouldn't think mine was from lupus.

    Hi Melanie,

    I have the dryness and itchyness of the inside and they've tested me for diabetes and that came back negative and apparentley it's to do with the Sjogren's disease i have, they've tested my eyes with strips and so far it's only 6/10, they worry when it's 2 or 3 out of 10.
