Unhappy Stapedectomy itchy ear canal

Hi all!

I had my stapedectomy 4 days ago on 3/14 and really feel like I am doing well... very little dizziness or pain. Right now the thing that is driving me crazy is itching way down deep in my ear (I imagine underneath the packing). Does anyone have a suggestion for relieving this? I know I can't rub it, and have tried to see if there are any accupressure points that might resolve it, but couldn't find that information. I've even tried biting my finger and concentrating on how much that hurts. I do not recommend it.

My packing is not due to be removed until 4/4 (3 weeks post op), so I have a long time to endure this situation.

Thanks for any help you can provide. I'm enjoying reading all your experiences.
