Dry skin in ear canal
Both my ears canals have flaky skin. It gets so dried up that by the end of the day I feel the urge to peel it off and my morning I get new skin, which gets dried and flaky again by the night. It doesn't bleed or hurt, but it just feels gross. What can I do to avoid this? Is it harmful in any way?

You don't need to peel it off.. Our ear skin is made in such a way that it keeps shedding off by itself.. Apply a moisturizer to reduce the flaking.
