Causes & treatments for an itchy ear canal

 + Allergy : You may feel itching inside your ear due to an allergic reaction caused by a beauty product such as hair spray, shampoo, or products that contain nickel  To treat allergies, you will need to find out what causes them and stop using them.

 

 + Eczema  :  You can usually treat these problems with drops. In severe cases, you may also need to take some medications.

 

 + Cleaning the ears : The use of cotton swabs may lead to inflammation of the ear canals.
