Hello Candy,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
The commonest cause of feeling of warm crawling in ear is likely due to ear wax. There can be other possibilities too;
1) Mild grade middle ear infection.
2) Otosclerosis (which is tiny bones in ear not working properly).
3) Even the sinus infections can cause abnormal sensation in the ear.
You may seek an appointment with your primary care physician or an ENT specialist for the evaluation.
Over-the-counter wax softening drops such as Debrox or Murine may be put into the affected ear and then allowed to drain out.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
