Does anyone have ear itchiness? My inner ears are SO itchy.. its been going on for about 2 weeks...could this be a lyme/bart/babs symptom? I went to the allergist and he looked in my ears.. didnt say anything about any infection

I have had inner ear itching for years. It drives me nuts. All they see when the doctors look in my ears is sometimes they'll tell me I have a bulging eardrum (from fluid behind the ear drum). A twice daily steroid nose spray and one month of abx for a sinus infection a few yrs ago are the only things that have ever done anything for it. I know mine is partly due to allergies, but there is some other factor involved otherwise that sinus infection abx wouldn't have done anything for it. I strongly suspect Lyme/coinfections can do this...seems they can do darn near anything.

Good luck,

hezzer and Razzle -

I am in the same boat: itchy ears, left one more than right one. I had a sinus infection two years ago and ended with a fungus in the left ear after abx eardrops; antifungal cream for three weeks. Then the fungus was gone, I kept the itching which I had even before the sinusitis. I used a lot of salt water nose spray lately which seems to make it at least a bit better. When the itching gets too much I put some drops of olive oil on a cotton bud or directly into my ear. This helps some.

What do you use to stop the itching? greetings to you! dorit

Do you have yeast problems? I wonder if this could be causing the itching? Yeast can be anywhere in the body.
Have a blessed day!

The same thing happens with my ears too. My PCP prescribed "diflorasone diacetate cream USP 0.05% (emollient)" and it does seem to help somewhat.

CajunGrl - I've wondered the same thing...

Hm, the yeast is a point, but I should have got it with the antifungal cream (I took Clotrimazol).

I am also about to start thinking if it may be allergy related - I had a very hard time the last days with the blooming yew trees, birches and alders - they drive me mad and my ear is itching much more; have the feeling that there was also a lot of itching in January when the hazelnuts started to bloom; honestly it did not come into my mind that the itching could have a connection to my heyfever/ allergy before this thread. Now I am really curious.

My Allergist said it is possible for inhaled pollen to go up into the eustacean tube from the nose and cause allergic inflammation.
