Q.

Itching ear

Doctor,
My 2yrs 7months old son has been complaining about his ear itching for past 3 days, what could that be? I'm planning to take him to Dr during weekend.

Thanks

This is often due to a problem called otitis externa which is an irritation or infection of the ear canal. This is usually started by using shampoos and not drying the ears well afterwards. He will respond well to the right ear drops.
