Itchy ears, using ear plugs
I have to use ear plugs for an extended amount of time every day. When I sleep, basically, and sometimes for work. The problem is, my ears, especially my left ear, is very itchy inside. I'm also experiencing some pain even though I'm careful about inserting and removing them.
I asked the pharmacist what he recommends and he said to use swimmer's ear drying drops and while it has caused my ears to remain drier, it hasn't stop the itching or the pain.
Any ideas on what to do and if I should see a doctor? Before anyone asks, no, I can't wear ear muff type protectors or the silicone that you put over, not inside, the ear canal.
