itchy painful ears
Hi there - I suffer from VERY itchy ears, which I scratch (!) and then they feel blocked and tender. Is there any reason why they would get so itchy and what can I do about it?
Please Help ....Thanks

Shona, it sounds like you have an outer ear infection. The best would be to see your doctor and have him prescribe you the appropriate treatment. If you first want to try something yourself, you can try something like Otised® ear drops. Good luck.
