25/03/09 5 4 1 1 For over five years I had the most intense itching in my ear canals. I saw Dr Awerbuck on multiple occasions over the years and he told me that "some people just have itchy ears". It was horrible. A friend suggested that I see a dermatologist. Almost immediately the dermatologist diagnosed my ear condition and prescribed a treatment that has eliminated the itch. I am so grateful that the itch is finally gone, but upset that my earlier visits to Dr Awerbuck left me feeling so hopeless. I wish that he would have either been able to diagnose and treat my condition - or that he would have recognized that I needed a referral to a dermatologist. My itchy ears might not seem like a big deal to him, but it was a huge issue for me. I'm not sure that I'd trust his judgment if I ever needed to see an ENT.
