Definition of Itchy ear

Itchy ear: Itching of the ears. Can be the first sign of an ear infection, but if the problem is chronic, it is more likely caused by a chronic dermatitis of the ear canal. Seborrheic dermatitis and eczema can both affect the ear canal. There is really no cure for this problem, but it can be made tolerable with the use of steroid drops and creams. People with these problems are more prone to acute infectious exacerbations. Use of ear plugs, alcohol drops, and non-instrumentation of the ear is the best prevention for infection. Other allergy type treatments may also help itchy ears.
