Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding itching in ears though you have consulted your doctor who had given you antibiotic, anti inflammatory and anti infective ear drop.

After analysing your symptoms and the medication you are taking it appears as you are most likely suffering from otitis externa. The infecting organism may be bacterial, fungal, viral or allergic.

All above listed pathological conditions are having feature of itching in ear and you may be having any of these.

I hope the treatment you are taking is sufficient but if you want more relief than with consent of your doctor you may add some anti histaminic in your prescription.
