Dr. Richard Mangus answered:

Is crackling in my ear due to an infection?

May be

Infection
Crackling in the ear is pretty non-specific. An abnormal ear sound can occur from something within the ear itself, or with the sinus passages around the ear. The diagnosis of an ear infection is made by a physician who looks into the ear canal and evaluates the tissue and the ear drum. If that is clear, they should look in your throat to see if there is swelling of tonsils. Check sinuses also.

What could cause ear crackling when I move my jaw?

TMJ

Open-uri20120707-24061-wz20qo
The most likely explanation is the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This joint is located just in front of the ear canal, and the sounds of the joint movements can often be detected by the nearby ear. This is called crepitus, the crunchy, crackling noise of the joint . Inflammation of the TMJ usually produces more noticeable crepitus. Other causes are hairs or wax in the ear canal.

Why do i have crackling in my ears when I swallow? Im Also fighting step throat.

Fluid in middle ear

Pharynx
You have clogged Eustachian tubes, which drain the middle ear into the back of the throat. It's due to inflammation from an infection or smoking. Try a decongestant. The symptoms will eventually improve after the infection is gone.

I keep hearing crackling and popping noise and my ears are always itchy. Is this allergies or something else?

Could be

Noise
These symptoms do suggest possible allergy. They also suggest eustachian tube dysfunction which can accompany allergies or sinus infections. Allergy testing in combination with a thorough history and physical exam can be helpful to diagnose whether allergy is the most likely cause of these symptoms.
