bad smell behind my ear?
Thu, 06-01-2006 - 1:52am

recently, i have been noticing a really bad smell that that is coming from behind my ears. its being generated via oil that my outer ear is giving off as the day grows old.
for instance, ill take a shower in the morning when i wake up. clean my ears where this smell is coming from, and at the end of the day, i can run my finger across the top of my outer ear and my finger will smell really bad. to be completely honest, it smells almost or exactly like "poop". this is not a joke. i would like to know what i can do to prevent this oil or fluid to form and end this bad smell it has.

washing it every day works for the first half of the day, and you cannot smell it unless you run your finger across it.

any answers would be very helpful.
thanks.

ps, forgive me for any spelling errors and my bad useage of grammer.
