Hi Sena,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Ear itching generally occurs due to a buildup of earwax (cerumen). In addition, the ear can also itch when a foreign object enters it, has allergies, is too moist, or has an infection, for example due to fungi, bacteria, and so on.

Excessive scratching of itchy ears is not recommended. Because, in addition to triggering injury, this action can also make your ear canal inflamed. In the medical realm, this condition is known as otitis externa. Symptoms are not just pain in the ear, but can be so intense that they radiate to the jaw, head, throat, and neck. Not infrequently, sufferers also feel fever, full sensation in the ears, lack of hearing, and excessive secretions.

We recommend that you first take paracetamol to treat your pain. Avoid scratching the itchy ears, and ensure that your ears are always dry, for example by drying them after every shower and not swimming or diving.

Next, check your complaint directly to a doctor or ENT specialist. In general, the doctor will provide medicines, either given topically (ear drops) or orally (oral medicine). In addition, the doctor will also evaluate the possibility of spreading inflammation in the outer ear to other areas, for example the middle ear, mastoid bone, and so on. With this examination, other possible causes of ear and jaw pain can also be ruled out, for example due to temporomandibular joint disorders, parotitis (mumps), lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes), tonsillopharyngitis, (sore throat and tonsils), and so on.

Hope this helps ..
