Just a suggestion ... have a medical professional look in your ears , instead of trying random cures ?

Yes, I have been to the doctor and they gave me a cream and it does help but as soon as I stop using it, the itch comes back. I was wondering if someone had the same problem and had a new cream/pill that I did not know about

@Jolanta There are so many potential causes for itching - not sure how anyone would know you have the same exact cause ... good luck.

baby oil to soften the skin. steroid topical ointment that relieves inflammation, such as 1-percent hydrocortisone cream or 0.1-percent betamethasone cream. swimmer's ear eardrops, or a diluted solution of rubbing alcohol, acetic acid, or hydrogen peroxide.

It's spring both in Australia and South Africa. I have that problem and my nose itch. ...so I take an allergy pill every night before bed. It seems to be working. Its a seasonal thing with me.

Try an antihistamine tablet. Hayfever or some other allergy may be causing it.

...could be seasonal, so an antihistamine seems about right this time of year.

@TimeOutForMe hayfever gives me itchy ears when it's really bad and with the winds we've been having the last couple of weeks it's been that way.

@Cyklone you better get on to a seasonal antihistamine for hay-fever fast. Speak to a Pharmacist for guidance. There's new products on the market from time to time. Good luck 👍

It is not hay fever, I had it now for a number of years but it is getting worse.

Call a clinic and ask to speak to a nurse.

Hydroxide

I get that a lot. The pharmacy sells an inexpensive ear cleaning kit that you use over a three day period and the wax comes out. There is ear candling but I haven't tried that.

I know you're not supposed to put qtips in your ears but when it gets really bad, I do it anyway but very carefully. Best of luck.

I had my ears cleaned out by a nurse and have no wax.

@Jolanta Do you mind if I ask how she did it?

@LovinLarge No problem. They sucked it out with a machine.
