My right ear feels like there is something crawling in my ear, for a few moments about 4-5 times a day or night. This has been going on about a week now. Lillie Foster,(NNN) NNN-NNNN
Do you have any discharge from that ear?

no
Looks like you have got seborrjeic dermatitis in your ear. Be absolutely sure, there are no bugs or other insects inside. If you use a steroid drop, it will go right away. Please, do not scratch. Ideally, you shoud visit a dermatologist.
Take care

where do i get the steroid drug and how can i find out if there is an insect in my ear--i have used a cotton swab but I probably do not need to do this--please reply.
<p>When you have seborrheic dermatitis, you feel as if you an insect inside but you have none. If you go to a chemist and ask for a steroid eye drop, he will give you many. For a long standing treatment you must visit a skin specialist.</p><p> </p><p>Please, click the ACCEPT button so that I can get my dues.

Do not use a cotton swab.Till, you see a skin specialist, if the problem is bothering you too much you can use a steroid ear drop.
