Ears itchy after chewing

The insides of my ears sometimes itch after I chew food. I've googled this before and I can't find anything on it. I assume it has something to do with my jaw. Is it TMJ? Anyone else experienced this?

Re: Ears itchy after chewing

I believe it to be eustachian tube related. The eating must stimulate it somehow...

Re: Ears itchy after chewing

In my case the itching problem is in the ear tube. I'll tell you what I do, but am in no way telling you do the same. I carefully mix up a solution of 35% hydrogen peroxide 4:1 with water (1 is the peroxide) and drop 2 eye droppers into my ear. I also do this at the first sign of a cold or sinus infection and it knocks it cold, also stops the itching. Again....I am NOT telling you to do this, just telling you what I do. Try Googling it and you'll see other suggesting it.
