Drops for Treating Itchy Ears

I was finding that every time I came out of a shower, my ears would itch like crazy. They would even start to hurt after awhile. I had been getting ear aches for over 2 years now. I went to the doctor but they were no help; a bunch of pills and a empty wallet and still no help.


After reading hundreds of web pages and articles, I came across a site that kind of described my symptoms. I found out it was similar to summer ear. Then, after scouting around, I decided to try this.

I mix 1 part vinegar to 1 part isopropyl alcohol. With a eye dropper, I put 1 drop into each ear. I think the alcohol evaporates any water and the vinegar prevents bacteria from starting. I couldn't believe how fast it worked for me. I have no more ear aches! After, if I find my ear feel itchy, I put polysporin on a Q-tip to put inside my ears.

One more thing, I find that when I get that itchy ear feeling again if I plug my nose and blow. It usually helps. Don't blow so hard until your ear drums pop, that's not good. Just blow hard enough until you feel and hear the air in your ears. It doesn't last forever but it does give you relief for awhile.

I believe most of all of these symptoms are all cause from allergies and all the pollution out there. No wonder there are so many people coming down with allergies and lung problems. I don't see it getting better any day soon either. I hope this helps someone. Good luck!

Hi- I had the same problem with itchy ears every time I came out of the shower until I change my shampoo!

I've had allergies & itchy ears and ear infections to the point the bones in my left ear eroded and now I'm hard of hearing. So I know what you're going through. My ears itch a lot too. One thing I've learned is to keep my ear canal dry. I don't shower or swim without an ear plug. Prevents soap or chemicals from getting in there too.


I blow dry my hair and ear canal too & never sleep with wet hair. Cortisone helps with the itch if it is really bad. Also I try to use a natural beauty bar that is not soap. It's available at a health food store and is a yellow bar in a blue box.

Vinegar is used for yeast or fungus infections, not bacteria.

In regard to the ear popping maneuver, what you're describing is Valsalva maneuver, which can be done if you have eustachian tube dysfunction to get relief from the painful pressure associated with it. Itching ears is a symptom some people with etd have-- I'm one of them.


Valsalva shouldn't be done more than a few times a day though since doing it frequently can mess with the elasticity of the eardrum.
