my right ear feels bloated and hurts. It's been itching
Seems otitis media
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
From the symptoms you are giving it is evident that you are having some otitis media which is acute infection of the mucosa behind the ear drum. Or you are having infection of the ear canal. Do you have any hearing difficulty,ear discharge? Start some nasal spray fluticasone, Steam inhalation. Avoid ear picking which can damage the canal wall and can cause same pain. Start an antiallergic tablet at night. You can do the Valsalva manouvre. Don't put water in the ear.
Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
