I have severe itching in my right ear since last few years. Candid ear drops have given partial relief. My family physician has suggested to instil few drops of surgical spirit after my bath. But no substantial relief. Please suggest some medicines for permanent relief. My age is 76 years. Thanks.

This is becoz at your age skin fall tendency is high, so this leads to itching and irritation, but do not put candid or surgical spirit, this may lead to hearing loss further, do not do self medication.
