Q: What does it mean when your ears burn and turn red?

I am a female, 43 years old. 

What is causing my ears to become visibly red, hot and itchy? I currently get an allergy shot every two weeks for mold and dust mites, but I'm wondering if I'm developing some sort of food allergy?

Hi shutterman,


I know you posted this a long time ago, but I wanted to make sure someone addressed your concerns.


Allergy shots can cause a variety of reactions, so the shots could be the cause.  Food allergies are more likely to affect your GI tract.  Make sure to check with your allergist for more advice.


I hope you are well and have learned what caused your trouble.  Feel free to let us know if you found an effective treatment.
