Me too - Help!
 
Other people actually have this!
I thought it was just me!
I've had this for years and its killing me, I scratch my mouth and my ears all the time, so make I make them really sore but I just can't stop the itch is so bad. - I'm doing it now.
I take antihistamine every day and if I don't take it for a few days I become itchy all over my skin.
I used to think the talets stopped the ear/mouth itchy mostly but recently I get the itching even when I am taking them.
I also have hayfever and am allergic to all fruit, including tomatoes and melon!
My whole life I have had a snotty nose, I blow my nose constantly every day and can often make it sore as well. Same with my breathing, I don't feel I can breathe through my nose properly, its almost like I need a little prop in there to open up my nose.
I also screw up my face and itch with my tongue and make weird noise, my boyfriend and sister often take the mick!

Has anyone found a good solution? Are there Neti-pots in the uk?

Has your GP ever referred you to an allergy clinic?

Revness 02-08-2015 12:52 PM

Hi
 
No I've never been referred.
They've just said to take tablets, but it's been really bad recently I might suggest it to them.

Go Vegan 02-08-2015 03:10 PM

Yes suggest it to them, you may get some better advice at a more specialist clinic :)

Revness 02-21-2015 02:55 AM

Hi
 
Good idea!
Thanks :)

No worries :)...Let us know how you get on :)

I'm just wondering whether anyone might be able to shed a little light onto something that I've been living with for the past seven or so years. The back of my mouth - the bit between my ears and my throat - itches like crazy! It's the bit that you can't reach by scratching your ears, and the only slight relief is to screw your face up while trying to rub your tongue against the back of your throat... (I so hope that makes sense and someone realises what I'm going on about! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">).<br><br><br><br>
I've been tested for common allergies (dust, lactose, nuts, etc...) and the only things I showed a VERY slight reaction to was soy and a certain grass pollen. Normally I take antihistamines daily and use a nasal steroid spray, but these don't always give relief although they work 90% of the time. This has made it tolerable I guess, but at the moment I'm not allowed to use either for other reasons so it's really driving me crazy! I'm losing sleep over it too, not to mention that the inside of my mouth is becoming so sore.<br><br><br><br>
I've spoken to my doctor on numerous occasions and they're useless - they have no idea what's causing it, and have been happy for me to just take tablets until now.<br><br><br><br>
Ho hum, hope someone can help!<br><br><br><br>

Have you tried the Homeopathic remedy called Wyethia Hellinoides? It may not be stocked at the local Health Food store, but you can order it. It comes in different strengths. It was for me a "MIRACLE" relief, it is made by Boiron,very inexpensive. Look it up. :-)

So, for the last 5 years or so, my wife seems to have been making this noise you all have explained. Today, I really upset her asking her to stop it. I can't take it anymore. I can only describe the noise as a pig snorting sound. Huhghh-Hoooggg Huhghh-Hoooggg Huhghh-Hoooggg Huhghh-Hoooggg Huhghh-Hoooggg... she says it itches in her throat and when she makes the noise she usually puts her finger on one ear. She says it's also allergy related. What do I do here? How can I help her? Should she see an ENT doctor?

I don't want to be this bad husband, but honestly she a beautiful woman... but all her sexiness just goes away when I hear that noise.

Fungal infection of eustachian tube
 
It could be a fungal infection of the eustachian tube which drains from the ear to the throat. Unfortunately the eustachian tube starts behind the ear drum so there is no easy access to it from the outside of the ear and the itch can only be scratched by rubbing the back of the tongue against the back of the palate. Sometimes the efforts of scratching cause a slight snorting sound in the throat. I've had this problem for years if not decades. Sometimes the itch builds up to an unbearable level in my ear as though some insect was crawling in it then eventually I feel some fluid draining out of my ear. The itching gets worse if I have a cold. I've noticed it also seems to get worse if I've eaten something sweet leading me to believe it could be a fungal infection although bacterial infections can also feed off extra sugar in the system. I've got a chronic immune problem to begin with (ME) and I also get chronic itching in other areas. Sometimes I also get a cheesy-smelly discharge from my belly button and again this seems to happen more if I've eaten something sweet. It also happens if I wear trousers that are high enough to cover my navel. If I eat sweet things or bread I also get bloated guts and diarrhoea. The GP was less than helpful when I asked to be tested for systemic yeast infection as he didn't want to spend a penny of the NHS budget if he could help it so it's still not confirmed to this day and I can't afford private healthcare. The NHS is good for accident and emergency and that's about it. It's useless for diagnosis. I just read some info that might be worth trying for ear infections. Infusing some coconut oil with garlic and putting some drops of it in the ear should kill off fungal infection. However this might only work if it's the outer ear canal that is infected. I don't know if any of it can pass the ear drum and get into the eustachian tube. In some people's cases it may be allergy or irritation that is the cause in which case an anti-fungal or anti-bacterial wouldn't work. In the case of eustachian tube infections if it is at the lower end which conjoins the throat, maybe gargling with antiseptic or water infused with garlic would help, but it might only partially help if some of the infection is further up the tube.

Is it our tonsils?
 
I also have this problem, but I was wondering if we all have something in common: tonsils. I still have my tonsils; I've never had them removed. I have the itchy inner ear to throat problem and even my palate and nose itch. Due to the anatomy of my tonsils, I also get mild tonsil stones (technical term tonsilloliths). Do others with this itchy problem still have their tonsils intact? I was told by one ENT that getting a tonsillectomy could alleviate these issues.

seanE 05-17-2015 02:05 PM

yer id say it´s candida, is it kind of like in itch in-between your ear and inside your mouth, i get it from time to time i find taking coffee makes candida much worse.

As well, sometimes it is an allergy or food sensitivity that causes that kind of itching. Mangoes, papaya, pineapples are some foods I have heard it linked with.

Personally I would keep my tonsils unless there were a constant infection that could not be treated.

Agh! I thought I was the only person with this affliction
 
For me I am affected thus: Most nights I don't sleep. Warm nights are worst. I get itchy nose, palette and ears. Often all three together. My ears may eventually pop after much demented rubbing with my hands while simultaneously rubbing my soft palette with my tongue and then water comes through the membrane of my ear drums as the pressure releases. Sometimes nose is the worst and by demented rubbing of nose and much blowing sinuses eventually open up. I have silver foil over my window to reflect the heat so my bedroom is a black out zone. Any kind of warm air can kick it off - the nasal passageways get irritated, swell and close up. Especially at dawn as the air starts to warm up. Can't bear sleeping with central heating. Sleeping with the window open helps - cool moist air. Long periods using an old fashioned monitor which radiates heat and dries the air are diabolical - I have had to pay alot of money for a state of the art monitor. I sleep half upright on lots of pillows which helps. Olbas oil helps. Often I am too exhausted but sometimes I can force myself to get up around 4 - 5am and eat something crunchy - cereals or apples are good together with a heavy duty anti histamine - Fexofenadine. Then often I sleep, sometimes till 10am. ENT found no fault with my sinuses except for a slight deviation of the septum...but I have this problem on both sides so not that. Allergy clinic found only one mild allergy to grass pollen. Nothing else, although I was on antihistamines at the time.....
I find it best to take an antihistamine tablet at least 2 hours before bed to give it time to work. It doesn't stop the symptoms but it helps.
The prospect of going on an aeroplane fills me with utter dread. If sinuses kicked off due to the warm dry air I don't know what I'd do.
I took the fast train from London and realised I couldn't open the windows. I cannot begin to describe the feeling of panic that welled up in me as the air conditioning was switched on. I have been like this for 23 years. It started after a very very stressful stay in hospital. It is definitely getting worse
I wonder if I am reacting to the mercury in my teeth.

joss5000 05-20-2015 03:56 AM

I am going to try a sugar free diet for a month and see if that works - to try and eliminate candida as a possible cause. I had recurrent candida in mouth and elsewhere for many years until I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid. since taking Thyroxine, the candida is now an infrequent visitor.

joss5000 05-20-2015 04:15 AM

Looking elsewhere on the net the main contenders seem to be:
aspergillus and
fungal infection of eustachean tubes

Some mention of SF722 which could help. Also zinc, B12 & probiotics

ENT were planning to cut out a piece inside my nose to widen the airway and now I feel certain this is not the solution - they are treating the symptoms not the cause.

joss5000 05-20-2015 05:00 AM

there is something here about a kill or cure remedy using 2 drops of 'golden seal root' in a solution squirted up your nose in your normal nasal douche
http://www.curezone.org/forums/am.asp?i=1740530
I am going to try it

I would try the zinc, probiotics, B12 (in fact a B complex as well), that and the goldenseal before having surgery, personally. I so suspect fungal by your description. [emoji173]

How to sort of fix it
 
I've got that too :S normally I'm fine at my mum's house, but when I go to my fathers it gets really bad, then sticks for a few days once I get back to my mum's. I've found things to help though! :)

1. Drink lots of water. When your body doesn't have enough to water, certain parts of your body can hurt/become irritated, which includes your throat, as well as eyes.

2. Water with salt (DON't swallow though). If there's any cuts in your throat, it'll be sure to heal them :)

3. Honey. Honey fixes almost anything, for some reason. Have a spoonful of honey (natural, not that store bought rubbish) when it starts to irritate you. If you don't want to take a spoonful by itself, you can add it to your tea, or spread it on toast.

4. Avoid things you're allergic (or mildly allergic) to, and smokers. Being around smokers can effect you in more ways than you think, including dry irritated eyes and, of course, itchy throat.

5. Don't scratch it! It'll just make it worse. If you feel like you really can't stop yourself, close your eyes and thing of anything else, just don't let yourself scratch with your tongue, fingers, or with the sound you make.


These should help, but they're not a permanent solution. Hope I helped :)

Sounds like an allergy to me. I get the same itching of the mouth, throat and inner ears when ever I'm exposed to artificial perfumes, colognes and paprika in my food. Unfortunately nearly all perfumes are artificial these days and they are in just about every thing from laundry soap to floor wax. Natural scents don't bother me; but, are rarely used now days and difficult/expensive to buy. Plus, If dryer sheets are used in my laundry I will itch all-over from it. You may want to try washing all of your things; clothes bedding etc., with an unscented detergent and clean every thing in your home with unscented/hypoallergenic products to see if that helps.

A solution to itchy palate?
 
I might have accidentally stumbled across a solution! I also often get what I like to term "itchy brain" at night. I read your post about 3 months ago when looking for a solution... seems no one knows really. Glad it's not just me! Occasionally I get dry eyes and use eye drops. So happened that both dry eyes and "itchy brain" have occurred simultaneously recently and I have put two and two together. It seems that having fluid down my tear ducts removes my "itchy brain"! I couldn't believe it! Who would have thought!? I've tried this when my eyes didn't feel dry but while i was still obsessively scratching my palate with my tongue and digging at my ears...and it works! within a minute!! I just use normal lubricating eye drops (Optive senstitive - carmellose sodium 5mg/mL, Glycerin 9mg/mL). I've tried it without fail now and it completely works for me, so I truly hope this works for everyone else. Such an annoying problem!

Blimey I get tonsil stones, horrible things and the itching in my palate and ears drives me mad. I also get the blocked nostril. Ive also got an underactive thyroid caused by an autoimmune disease Hashimoto`s. I`m a dental nurse so embarrassing to be scratching your throat at work.

francois3 09-11-2016 01:02 PM

Somepost here are quite old... but do you still have this chronic itching problems ? After 5 years ears problems, and crazy itchy crises, I cured myself with a home-made-grafted-plant. I can share for free, so if you interested to get cured, just contact me.

Lou68 09-12-2016 10:36 PM

Try neilmed
 
Neilmed nasal cleanser is simple but very effective . I use sea salt . I suffer with post nasal drip ,which seems to come on when stressed . The cleanser gives immediate relief . I have just stated to get itchy throat that affects my inner ear and my left nostril . I'm guessing allergy related so I will neilmed when I get home from work and see if it works :)
