my ears itch all the time. I had some sort of infection in it once that the doctor said looked like poison ivy, but wasnt. It made me lose most of my hearing temporarily. it felt like it started in my throat and worked its way out my ears. she put this white powder in my ears and it cleared up. this was 6 years ago. it worked for about a year and since than, my ears are always itchy, raw, oily and draining and crusty. im at a different doctor and they tell me they dont see a problem. I dont have a fungus. I dont know what to do.
