How To Get Rid Of Itchy Ears

Itchy ears can really drive a person crazy, so knowing how to get rid of itchy ears is important. A person can have a case of itchy ears for several reasons. You may have gotten soap in your ears, removed too much ear wax, or you may even have swimmer's ear. Whatever the cause, you will want to treat the itching as soon as possible.

To get rid of itchy ears, you will need:

  • Two drops of water
  • Two drops of vinegar
  • An eyedropper
  • Cotton balls
  1. To successfully stop the itchy ears, mix the water and vinegar together. This mixture will help bring the pH level in your ears back to normal so that you no longer experience the annoying itch.
  2. Suck the vinegar and water solution up into a dropper. Drip two drops of the vinegar solution into your right ear. You will need to tilt your head to the left. Place a cotton ball in your ear for two to five minutes to collect vinegar and water that drips back out.
  3. Drip two drops of the vinegar solution into your left ear. You will need to tilt your head to the right. Place a cotton ball in your ear for two to five minutes to collect any solution that comes back out.
  4. Repeat these steps once per day for two to three more days to completely stop the itch. Warning: do not use this method if you have perforated ear drums or ear tubes in your ear. Seek medical attention if the itch lasts longer than seven days.
