Foul smell in nose, pain in left ear, right ear making scratching sound. What could be this?

I have a foul smell in my nose occationally. Mostly when I bend over or lean forward. Started about a year ago Also have had a bit of pain in my left eye for the past few weeks and its very dry near my eye even with lotion. Now my right ear is making a scratching sound occationally. Any clue what this might be? I plan on calling ENT Dr tomorrow if possible.

ENT Specialist 's  Response

I have gone through your description. Although not very clear, that you are calling an ENT tomorrow, you are doing the right thing. Disorders of nose can manifest with symptoms in eyes too. The occasional sound in your right ear may be just an incidental finding. It is better to get your nose and sinuses examined by an ENT specialist to rule out any major issues.
