Itchy ears can be caused by various causes. From the circumstances that your child is experiencing, the child's ear that looks itchy accompanied by white spots may be caused by a fungal infection of the ear.
Fungal infections of the ear can occur in children or adults. Fungal infections in children have risk factors for example if the ears are often wet and moist. Fungal infections of the ear can cause symptoms such as itching of the ear so that the child appears to scratch the ear, the baby / child becomes fussy, and can appear white spots or spots on the ear. This requires treatment using certain antifungal drugs.
