Repeated blockage and itching of ears over several year period. Have been to family doc, dermatologist, and ENT. Wax ruled out. Dermatologist gave me ear oil and that helps when itching is bad. I think it may be allergy related. Recent problem is typical: went to bed one night with no symptoms of nasal or ear blockage or itching, woke up in morning with both ears completely blocked. Wore new earrings the night before -but they were nickel free. The earrings did not cause any itching or discomfort of any kind while being worn. Can contact from an allergen of some type cause ears to completely block/swell ? Took an antihistamine and decongestant - no relief in 2 days time. I am at my wit's end. Any suggestions are welcome.
