i've had some itchiness in the ears for a few days now, and sometimes a jabbing pain and a little ringing (mostly when i lay down at night). my ears feel full and my hearing is a little dulled (i think, anyway) as well.
what could be causing this? for some reason my scalp has been very itchy at night these past few days (i have a problem with dandruff but my scalp usually does not itch), as are other parts of my body (something will itch here, something will itch there, so on). i clean my ears with q-tips but hardly anything ever comes out.
oh boy ... i really don't want to be told this is something i'll have to live with for the rest of my life ...
please help! thanks.
