Suggest treatment for itching sensation in the ear

I have had itchy and scaling eyes for three months in the last month I have had an ear problem of itching, drainage and some pain. The last couple of days I ve had a soreness of the inside of my lips. I have gone to the clinic and seen the nurse practitioner, who gave me ear drops, which helped for a few days. No fever. Ringing in my ears some.
