What is the cause of severe itching in the ears?
Q: I have severe itching in my ears everyday. I have to use ear buds to get rid of the itching. There is no dirt in my ear as I have been using ear buds for the last one ear. The itching subsides after using ear buds. Please advise.
A:There are various reasons for itching in the ear. Fungal infection, seborrhoeic dermatitis, inflammation of external ear, wax formation or ear discharge may cause itching. Irritation or inflammation in throat and teeth also could be the cause of irritation in the ear. Consult an ENT doctor and get your ears checked.
