I have extremely itchy ears, that spread to neck & face. I have a swollen gland/lump beside the jaw bone (right under my earlobe). What can this be?

Possible allergy: If you wear earrings and have this rash you may be allergic to the nickel in the earrings. See a dermatologist or your general doctor who can prescribe a cortisone cream and stop wearing the earrings till the rash has gone away. You may want to go have patch testing done at a dermatologist office to see if you are allergic to nickel. There are earrings made of titanium is rare to be allergic to.

I've developed an itchy face ears mouth, can I take fexofenadine and loratadine together for faster results?

I've developed an itchy face ears mouth, can I take fexofenadine and loratadine together for faster results?

Yes but: You can use them together but they're practically identical so I don't know that you'll get much mileage out of the combination. You'd do better to use a second, different medicine with the antihistamine like a topical steroid cream. Or for really awful cases, an oral (or im) steroid. (you'd need to see your doc for that). If the itch is due to fungal infection, it must be addressed.

I have chronic itchy ears. What can I do to stop them from itching so much instead of using q tips.

Itchy ears: It would probably be best to find out why you have so much itching and address that problem. Most likely, you have an allergy that manifests as itching in your ears. If that's the cause, an antihistamine such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Zyrtec (or others) should help. If not, see an ENT doctor to make sure there's nothing there of greater concern. And you are right. Don't use q-tips in your ears.

Itchy ears, nosebleed and spitting out blood?

See doc: Nosebleeds and spitting out blood can be connected. Your age, frequency of nose bleeds, and how they have been managed can help. Knowing that there are no other problems such as smoking, cancer, chronic cough, points to spitting out blood from the nose bleed. Ears can itch from dry skin, wax, or just because. Try not to put anything into your ear. Seek help for nose bleed. See doc.
