External otitis: Itching of the ear strongly suggests external otitis or "swimmers ear". Keep your ear dry. No q-tips. Use ear drops devised for this problem from a pharmacy.

I have a mild swelling in my left ear from sinus drainage and allergies. Is there a home remedy I can use to clear any bacteria from my ear canal?

Not related: The ears and sinuses are not directly connected and from your description, I cannot tell if the problem is from a bacterial infection or something else. It is best for you to get these checked out by your doctor. Once the diagnosis has been made, then you can decide on what kind of Rx may be best for you

I have severe burning in both ear canals. I have recently started wearing in the ear hearing aids. Is this a common problem and should I see a gp?

Fitting: I don't know what exactly is causing the burning in your ear canals, but hearing aids must be properly fit before wearing them. Not all dispensers of hearing aids take the time required to do this properly, and sometimes a licensed audiologist may be needed for this purpose.

I have been having burning sensation in my head it doesn't stay I'm the same spot my ears have had a burning sensation too and sometimes pain?

The nerves in the...: head and face are intricately wired & densely packed. The brain can get confused about where a sensation is coming from. Pain, burning, throbbing and other unpleasant sensations that recur are signs that a sensory nerve may be irritated or inflamed. Just because it's confined to your head doesn't mean it's "all in your head". Please see a doctor!

What could be the cause of burning sensation in lymph node behind ear near jaw and some ringing in that ear from time to time?

Possible infection: Lymph nodes are localized groups of white cells that are designed to attack foreign tissue, especially infections. When activated, there can be a burning sensation to the surrounding tissues. Ringing in the ear is a non specific symptom, but may be associated with inflammation and infection. Best to have this checked out.
