In brief: Probably your fault

Almost all of my patients with itchy ears clean their ears with qtips or use peroxide or other measures.
You need healthy wax in your ear canals. Wax moistens and protects the skin. Remove healthy wax and your skin drys outs and becomes inflamed. This leads to itching. Stop cleaning your ears. Get some1% Hydrocortisone cream. With a clean finger take some cream and rub it into your ears 3xday 1 wk.
