Common Questions and Answers about Itchy ears inside

itchy

Currently, his ears have been bothering him very badly to the point where he has scratched off some of the hair off of the side of his ears and the inside is red, raw, and slightly bleeding. I took him to the vet on Tues and the vet gave us gentizol ointment to apply twice a day for 10 - 14 days. It doesn't seem to be working yet. Whenever i'm around i always stop him if he starts scratching but i can't watch him when i am not home so he ends up scratching off the scabs that have developed.
Recently both my ears feel itchy, tickly like there is something inside them, but i clean them both with a cotton bud stick everytime I have a shower (which is once every other day). so I don't think it is ear wax, any suggestions?
Did they check for yeast infection in your ears? I have had this on going problem(itchy ears for over 10 yr) draining, scaling, itchy, smelly, sticky fluid,infection for over 5 months now & this drop is the best I have found yet but its NO CURE. I tear at my ears in my sleep to this day,makes them bleed. I try to keep my hair covering my ears because it is embarassing and ugly. I don't have the money to go back to the ENT at this time so I will suffer a little longer.
Some times I will see a rear foot inside the ear. How can I tell if the itchy ears is dirty ears or mites? Is it safe to put ear mite insecticide into a cats inner ear. ? I put Advantage on my cats every month for fleas. My cats are indoor and outdoors cats. I do not let my cats outdoors when it is dark out. Only in the day light.
But for the past year or two I've had EXTREMELY itchy ears. Both of my inner ears get these irresistible itches. I use qtips all the time and I know that's so horrible but they're the only things that help me relieve the itches.I wake up in the middle of the night with the most crazy itches and it drives me insane! I hate being in public and getting ear itches because there's nothing I can do. I usually just close my ear & wait for it to go away but that's hard.
Eventually the itching was unbearable, and sweet-smelling fluid started coming out of my ears. Also, when I ate or chewed, my ears would burn like crazy! It felt like the inside of my ears were on fire. My primary care doctor prescribed me special oil, which didn't help. Then he prescribed me some anti-itch steroids, which sometimes helped but not for more than a month. Finally he gave up and sent me to a specialist (ENT).
Don't know if anyone can help...but I've been having really itchy ears lately, a little inside the ear canal and on the outside...i do suffer from allergies so I'm thinking this may be the cause. But now I've been having this real annoying ringing in my left ear. Both ears feel a little full, the left is worse though. I went to an ENT a few months ago and they did not find anything. My Primary prescribed me some Decongestants but that was a while ago.
For the last two years I have had wet itchy ears that get clogged, and with the white flakey stuff too. The antibiotic drops work, but the itchiness and other symtoms all come back within one or two weeks. The itchiness gets so bad that I can't stand it and I dont care if q-tips are bad, I have to stop the itching or go insane. I didn't know until I stumbled accross this sight that there are others out there that understand what I am going through. Thank you.
I have discovered (after a ton of research) a home solution for my itchy ears which is astounding me. It has now been a month since I started this and I seem to be on the road to relief. If this helps even just one person here that is suffering like I was then I am glad to have helped. Get a small dispenser bottle that has a wide mouth, with a lid, and with which you will be able to dip a q-tip into.
I have rashes inside of my eyes, nose, ears, throat ( I have a mild case of discomforting tightening in the throat and my chest) scalp, esp., in between my toes, hands, palms of my hands and feet (my hands and feet feel like all my blood is rushing in upside down) my face. Due to all day itching for almost over a month, most of my body is severely bruised...yuk!
It looks like black, sticky gunk in the ears. What do the inside of the ears look like? Does this sound familiar? BTW, I have also seen hair loss on the ears, but it was nothing major. Fleas caused that! Please share with us a few more details!! I hope that someone else responds that have seen something like this! The details will help us a whole bunch!
my six year old came home from school with lice 10 days ago, and about the same time I noticed that the inside of my nose was really itchy and my ears feel itchy and full as well. Do lice nest in your nose and ears? My daughter has extremely curly textured hair, and it has been quite a challenge to get rid of all the nits......
Hi, I have for the past few days started to get cold like symptons, started with a sore throat, then blocked ears and blocked nose and now my right eye look red and feels a bit itchy. I have taken my contact len out in this eye and am wearing my glasses for a few days until my symptons clear. Do you think this is just because I have a cold that my eyes are itchy and dry and a little tired? Does a cold affect your eyes?
not sure what to call this, but what I have is some pimples that grew inside my ear canal, an later at the entrance of my ear canal, not sure I should ask an ENT Doc or a Dermatologist.

More sever itching and this time all over my head and face including inside my ears and up inside my nostrils. Also in my eyelids and eyebrows and lashes. In desperation I rubbed surgical spirit into the most affected areas and this helps a lot. But it stings like hell for a couple of minutes - like after-shave but worse. However this is a short term remedy as in a few hours the itching is back. I also discovered that eau de cologne helps too but I smelled like a tart!

Hi, you have the exact symptoms I have now, the scaby neck and behind the ears, the scabby itchy ears and the pin pricks on the end of my finger which looks like splinters but isn't. Did you find out what this was!? Or has anyone else had the same??
I've had skin itch problems for 5 years now & I've all but given up on finding solutions as it seems nobody can help me. I was in Malaysia for some years, which has a tropical climate & I used to get athlete's foot as a student all the time. I itch allover my body, but it varies. Worst, most annoying & most consistent is my feet that itch constantly, it just never stops, it even wakes me up at night!
For several years I have had a sort of swimmers ear, with itchy, weepy skin inside my left ear canal. Sometimes cortizone cream will help relieve it for awhile but it always returns again. Now, I seam to have this same condition around my rectum (and hemmoroids). It is VERY VERY itchy and disturbs my sleep . After scratching the area it weeps . Do you have any remedies? I have used cortizone cream but it does not work for long.
Hi, welcome to the forum, your condition seems to be allergy related and is suggestive of Atopic dermatitis (AD), which is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder. There is abnormal barrier presents in the skin which gets disrupted upon exposure to the allergen. The allergen can be in the form of excessive bathing, low humidity environments, emotional stress, xerosis (dry skin), overheating of skin, and exposure to solvents and detergents.
i still haven't presented with any of the obvious symptoms such as bumps or warts on my penis, but i've experienced an on-again off-again burning sensation just inside of the tip of my penis. most of the time i would say it's simply irritating, though for a day or two about a week ago it did move up to what i would call painful.
My terrier was just treated for host specific Mites which show up as black spots on these same areas, her chest, under the pits, inside her ears, around her mouth. I was concerned when I noticed tufts of fur trailing her. After 2 weeks of my attending to her with only partial success I got a Frontline prescription with a proper diagnosis from a vet. A simple scraping under the microscope yielded instant confirmation on what ailed her.
