Why Do My Ears Itch?

Ears are fairly small but are very sensitive as they are full of neurological fibers.

What causes Itchy Ears?

There are several reasons for ear itching which include:

  • Dry Skin: It ears don’t produce enough wax then they become dry and itchy.
  • Ear canal dermatitis: This occurs when the skin in and around the ear canal becomes inflamed.
  • Otitis externa: It is an infection of the outer ear canal which can cause ear pain as well as itching.
  • Hearing air use: Hearing aid can cause water to become trapped in the ears.

Symptoms of Itchy Ears

  • Fever
  • Swelling
  • Drainage from the ear
  • Pain
  • Itching


The physician may recommend the following:

  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Baby oil to soften the skin
  • Steroid topical ointment


Avoid cleaning your ears with the object such as cotton balls, Cotton swabs, paper clips, and Bobby pins.
