Q.

itching, drainage & cant hear well in left ear

I am 47 & have had insanely itchy ears for over 5 years, doc said it is dermatitis, as of this year, i keep getting infections or I think anyway. Never painful but always drainage & comes & goes. This last bout was especially bad & had a lot of foul drainage with swelling behind the ear (glands) and in neck too. I also have lost a good % of hearing. IT has come back more today but I have like a slight static sound that is constant. Was treated for inner ear infecttion & given oral antibiotics.

I would suggest starting with an ear nose and throat specialist to start with treating the recurrent infections as well as seeing an audiologist for a hearing test to see where the problem is exactly.
