Medically, an itching ear (ear eczema) may be a symptom caused by a number of medical reasons including allergens, rash, ear mites, earwax, swimmer's ear, etc. An itching ear may also be a symptom of a bacterial or fungal infection from Aspergillosis and others, or from a parasitic disease/infection caused by Linguatulosis.
