:confused: My ears itch terribly. No pain or discharge. This lasts a few days to a week at a time. EAR/NOSE/THROAT doc said maybe not enough wax? Would like to know what I can do to relieve itching and if there is anything else this is a symptom of. I have allergy symptoms but not always at same time of ears itching. Just found out I may have COPD - is this related in any way? Please help!

  • I had a terrible itch in my right ear for several weeks before I sought medical attention. The medication the doctor prescribed was useless. (An antibiotic, an ear oil, and 20 mg of prednisome). The prednisome raised my blood pressure and sent me to emergency. I turned on my computer and Keyword: Ear itch. I came across a solution that solved my problem. So simple: place 1 part white vinegar to 1 part water in the ear with an ear dropper. I put in several drops and EUREKA! I was surprised at how quickly the itch dissapated. GONE! I asked the nurse if the doctor knew about the vinegar and water and she said he did and that he sometimes recommends it for cleaning the ear.

  • A dermatologists ran some tests on me and said I was allergic to toluene..an ingredient in fingernail polish. When i use polish, I get a reaction...yes, in my ear canal! Itching, but when you touch it, it feels like a sunburn., I think extremely small blisters form and the dry up and then the skin peels off like a sunburn. If I don't use nail polish, I am fine.
