Troubled with an itchy ear?


Itchy ears are a common problem that is usually not harmful. They can sometimes be due to an infection, dry ears, food allergies, or other allergies, earwax blockage, swimmer's ear, or due to certain skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema. Aggressive scratching, harsh use of cotton buds, or inserting a sharp object in your ear is dangerous and may cause permanent ear damage. Visit an ENT specialist for the safe removal of ear wax and to check for any other problems.
