Please speak with your doctor
about this question, and speaking with an ear nose and throat surgeon
(AKA ENT AKA otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon) may be the best use of your time. Ear problems are rare, but when they do happen, they can be serious and should be treated appropriately. When people have itching in their ears there are a number of possible explanations. One of these is an outer ear infection, which is also known as swimmer's ear, or otitis externa. There is usually intense pain associated with moving the skin or the cartilage of the ear, as well. While antibiotic drops can be quite effective, research has found that seeing an ear nose and throat doctor
that can appropriately clean the ear before starting the drops tends to decrease the amount of time that it takes before you start to feel better. Another thing that can make your hearing decrease is to have either a foreign body or an impaction of wax in the ear, either of which could have happened when you put something in your ear. For that reason, doctors generally recommend not placing things in your ears. Please speak with your doctor about this question.
