I have had a problem with itchy wet ears since I was 18 ( I am now 24). The change came along after I was hospitalized for a week with a tonsillar abscess during which I was pumped full of antibiotics intravenously. The antibiotic usage resulted in a yeast infection that was prolific through my entire body. I believe the ear "infections" were a result of this. Try buy some freeze dried acidophilus capsules and opening them up and putting the powder in your ear to see if it reacts to yeast buildup (if that is what it is). If it is yeast, change your diet, avoid sugars, liquor, and start identifying other common allergens that may flare it up. Best wishes and good luck
I've had the same tormenting ear problem for about fifteen years now - I got so desperate I stuck a garlic clove in my ear! It actually relieved the itchy temporarily!!! Do you use q-tips? Do you have a hariy dog? It seems to me to be either extreme allergies which settle in the ears, or some type of psoriasis in the ear canals..it's driving me crazy and no one seems to think it's a big deal - can't hear half the time and would love to stick a long thin brush down my ears and just scratch for hours!
