Will acetic acid help with itchy ear canals? How long after using can I put my hearing aids in? Aids go behind ear and in canal.
It may: Acetic acid is probably helpful for itchy ear canals but is more appropriately used as a first drug for otitis externa or infection of the ear canal skin. My recommendation for itchy ears, which usually indicates dryness and if you are a Q tip user, please stop forever, is MINERAL OIL. This medication lubricates the skin of the canal and I have had few complaints after patients use it. ...Read more
Probable allergies: Itchy ears could be caused by wax or eczema. Sometimes there is no obvious reason. Prescribed cortisone drops usually are very effective. Sore throat and congested nose could be caused by viruses, bacterias and allergies. Allergies are very common. Tx try Claritin (loratadine) or allegra, but no decongestant like claritin-d/afrin/allegra-d. Decongestants can elevate blood pressure, cause racing heart/insomnia. ...Read more

I have a rattling sound in my chest, itchy ears, and a sore throat but no other symptoms. Should I see a dr or wait a little?
I am a 25 year old female that is yet to be allergic to something. Last two days I have had a red, sore throat and incredibly itchy ears.
Viral: The red sore throat is likely from a viral infection which however does not usually cause itchy ears. Perhaps you have a fungal infection in the external ear canals often from getting water into the ears. If so, you will need to consult your doctor to get you some antifungal ear drops (+/-) cortisone. I don't believe these two conditions are more coincidental than connected however. ...Read more

I gave oral to a male I'm female. 2 days later I developed a sore throat, then itchy ears, headache, and runny stopped up nose with np cough. Std?
Probably not STD: STDs can be transmitted by oral sex, especially fellatio. However, STDs don't cause symptoms like yours. Sounds like you have viral URI, i.e. a cold, not from the oral sex exposure. But you certainly could have caught it just by being that close, and especially if the sexual event included kissing. Ask your partner if he has (or had) a cold. If so, no need to investigate this any further. ...Read more

Runny nose and super duper itchy sore throat. .. Also sometimes when I sneezing my ear hurts. What could this be?
Runny nose and itch: The symptoms of runny nose, sneezing and itching are consistent with allergies. The ear discomfort that comes with sneezing can be seen with "eustachian tube dysfunction" where nasal congestion leads to poor functioning of the tube connecting the middle ear to the throat. Once the congestion is relieved, so will the ear pain. An allergist can assist in identifying the trigger of the symptoms. ...Read more

Not throat cancer: Cancer won't announce itself like this, especially at your age. It's a relatively slow-growing ulcer or mass that is cruelly subtle in its initial presentation. Being a singer, you're already protecting yourself from most forms of throat cancer by not smoking. Best wishes. ...Read more
