I am a 14 year old male. I have had very itchy ears for a few years and I always rubbed and scratched them. This irritated them, and in recent times I have noticed a slight decrease in hearing. Every now and then I have a ringing in my ears. I think it's caused by the damage I caused to my ears. I'm scared and am trying to stop irritating my ears so no more damage occurs. But it just itches so much! How do I deal with the itching? Is there any way to heal the damage caused? What are the possible symptoms? Is it possible that I could become deaf?
it could be a fungal infection. Valley Fever. i have had it for 2 years on one side of my head. the ringing is the only thing i can hear out of one ear. yes, my one ear is deaf. i mix canesten cream, an antifungal, with clove oil for the itching.
