Do you have any natural remedy ideas for soothing itchy ear canals?


When my seasonal allergies act up (as they are now) my allergy medication stops the most annoying of symptoms. However, nothing I've tried or been prescribed relieves the accompanying itchiness and occasional burning I experience in my ear canals. I'd appreciate any home remedies or natural relief suggestions, thanks much!

    Diana Lee, I've tried the oil by itself with no help, but will try it with the blow dryer. Thanks much - and if it works I'll let you know!

    Beth,

    Did you see Kathleen Odenthal's Hub about curing allergies naturally? Try curing your allergies.

    You win, Alastar -- that is the oldest "home remedy" in history. LOL

    I forgot to add: if it is an ear infection that is causing the itchiness, try hot onion packs. Saute the onions and wrap them in a towel. Place the hot pack over the ear for at least half and hour. My Dad used to do this and it really helped.
