Numbness in left ear, feels itchy and dry. Pet dog has ear mites. Can the itchiness be due to this?

Hello, Since Saturday March 24, I have experienced a numbness in my left ear. The numbness is still there and it also feels itchy and dry/tight. I have fallen recently and I do not sleep in this side. Although the numbness is not mistaken, however my yellow lab puppy has ear mites and I am wondering if my itchy ear is all a manifestation in my head due to his ear problems. Thank you

Hello and welcome to health care magic,

In any case whether you have the mites in the ears which are causing the problem or not, it is advisable to consult an ENT as soon as possible as I have removed more than fifty cases of mites from the ear!
Nevertheless they are harmless and easily removable so do not worry
An ENT can even confirm if there is any problem so that you do not have to have any doubts whatsoever
