Itchy Swollen Ear Canal Symptoms
Ear canal swollen and same ear and eye on left side bumps all over and itchiness. Could there be something in ear or just allergic reaction.?
Allergic reaction: The itchy bumps imply an allergic reaction and should respond to some over the counter cortisone cream, but swelling of the ear canal usually means an outer ear infection (such as "swimmer's ear") and usually ear drops would be prescribed. Occasionally white vinegar or hydrogen peroxide can be used for mild swimmer's ear.
Very sore throat that feels "itchy" (best word I can think to describe the scratchy pain). Same feeling deep in ear canal. Swollen glands under chin.
Please get a strep: Throat culture/ test. Antibiotics are imperative for strep throat. Try saltwater gargles. Mix tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day. You can gargle w aloe vera juice a couple of times per day. A mix of chamomile tea w honey ; a small amt of lemon juice helps.
Fever with chills, whole body ache and swollen lymph nodes in the neck under the right ear and near left ear canal. And rash on forehead but not itchy?
MD: You need evaluation and treatment by your MD.
Doctor can check: You could be having simple allergic reaction a heat pad on the ear and take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) from over the counter there is special ear drop but it required a Rx from a doctor no improvement see your doctor he can make the right diagnosis and help you with the right treatment

What can I do about a crusty, itchy rash (?) in my ear canal? I read somewhere that the bacteria inside the ear is different than outside on your body.
Dry skin: Like the rest of the body surface, the skin in the ear canals can get dry, crusty and intensely itchy. I often recommend putting a drop of vegetable oil into the canals about 2x/wk to moisturize the skin. I agree that an infection may also be possible but it would not respond to the application of oil in the ear canals.See 3 more doctor answers
I had my ear irrigated, then the ear canal became itchy, then I got a middle ear infection, now the infection has gone its itchy again? What will help
Tincture of time: And try not to submit to scratching the itch too much. This is likely self limited. Ask your doctor if there is some type of moisturizing or anti-itch cream you could put on (very small amounts) but I would not recommend applying it with anything like a q-tip or anything. Remember, nothing should go in your ear except your elbow! Lol! Hear! Hear!
Ear sore to touch on tragus/lobe & itchy in ear. Preceded by cut at outer ear canal. Now slight itch/barely any pain. Still need to get exam/infected?
Sore and itchy throat, one of my inner ear canal hurting and itching, sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes.
Allergies vs Cold: It sounds like you could have one of two things going on- a cold or allergies. Your symptoms are consistent with seasonal allergies, hitting you all at once, which is no fun. You might try an over the counter med like claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec, or Allegra to see if this helps. You may also need prescription medications to help control your symptoms. If it continues past 1-2 weeks, see your doctor.
Call doctor: Best to call doctor to have entire head checked, then appropriate treatment can be started to get you back to health.See 1 more doctor answer
