This is a common form of ecsema, which is basically dry skin. It can be treated by using prescription shampoo; even an over-the-counter dandruff shampoo might help.

A white crust builds up behind the ears when you don't carefully wash well into the ear crease during showering. It is an accumulation of dead skin cells.

The cause for white crust behind the ears can be due to the soap residue. After showering, make sure that you rinse off all of the soap.
