I heat a few drops of baby oil and let it cool a little and drop into my ears. Works for me.
Sometimes allergies will cause an itching or tickling in your ears. Get an OTC allergy medicine and give it about a week to kick in. I used to have this problem until I learned to control my allergies.
You may have infection or swimmers ear, which is fluid behind the ear! Try alcohol or pure grain liquor (yeap, the 90 proof) and vinegar. 5 teaspoons of liquor or alcohol (liquor works better because its more pure than Isoporyl alcohol to 1 tsp of vinegar. That sounds weird & like a lot of alcohol or liquor, but believe me it is tried & true for me as I have always had problems with water in my ears and have so recently & use about 2-3 drops after showering or if it itches. If you have pain, be careful doing this because it may hurt worse, and then see your doctor. Also, the sweet oil is good to loosen waxy build up! Hope you feel better!
Someone I knew got a tiny bug in her ear. If it is a bug, it might be coaxed out by shining a flashlight into your ear in an otherwise dark room. Otherwise the oil mentioned above might drown it.
If it's dry skin or irritation instead of a bug, the oil should help that too.
Try Sweet Oil. Put some on a cotton ball and sit in your ear for awhile. It can be found in a pharmacy. Good luck.
