Itchy ears

Yep. What can this be? I often feel like the inside of my ears are itchy. Not dirty, just itchy. Someone suggested to me that it could be a sign of allergies. I do have seasonal allergies. Anyone else experience this?

Mine are associated with allergies and with dry skin. Get a small amount of coconut oil, baby oil, or even Vaseline on a Q-tip. Put it just at the opening of your ear canal and massage it a bit. Do not push the Q-tip down into your ear! It helps mine to feel better.

Yes! I am so glad to know I'm not a weirdo and others have this issue too! . It's the most uncomfortable feeling.

I suffered with this for years. Asked allergist, regular MD and got no answers except an ointment to use if I needed. Drove me nuts!

Dr Teachnkids solved her own problem!!! I stopped using a q-tip every day. I gently used a towel to dry my ears. I use a q-tip about every 5 days. Took a while to break my daily habit, but it is sooooo worth it.

Worth a try to see if it helps you!

Like a previous poster, I put coconut oil in my ears. It seems to help.

New medication?

I was put on a med once and that was one of the side effects I experienced. I was consumed with my itchy inner ears. The doctor said "oh yah, sometimes that happens" and switched the med. Thanks for the heads up doc! The itch stopped the next day.

You could put hydrogen peroxide in your ear for about one minute. Let it go all the way in and bubble. After a minute, turn your head over and dump it out. That has always helped me.

Thank you, bGracie! That worked for me. I've had itchy ears for months and itchy to the point of distraction for weeks. A little peroxide and they've been itch free for 24 hours so far.
