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.
