    itchy ears!!!

    i get a really bad itch within both ears nearly every day, it may sound strange but it is only when i go to bed that it starts and it keeps me awake for a long time!!
    I have a little bit of dry skin on them, but not much, i have had this for a while now and it is really bothering me.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Kt

    Re: itchy ears!!!

    It might be related to seasonal allergies. Sounds crazy, but it happens to me.

    Try putting a little cortisone cream on them, or taking some allergy pills. The pills might take a few days to start working, the cream should show some effect within hours.

    Hi, thankyou for your reply.
    It would make sense actually as i do get hay fever, sneezing and stuff, i will try that and hopefully it may calm it down a bit!!

    Thanks

    Re: itchy ears!!!

    My ears are also very itchy, but I don't think mine is related to anything seaonal. They're itchy all year round! My only advice would be to find a small, blunt, solid object that you can use to scratch in your ears without hurting yourself. I find that using the thin end of a plastic pen cap is perfect and it relieves the itchiness for a while.
