The itching and scaling is something I've had for years and have gone to several dermatologist and been given the same answer...do not scratch inside your ears.  The only solution I have received is a topical steriod cream that helps with the itching but provides no long term cure of the scaling and itching.

      Just the topical steroid cream. It keeps it at bay. Sometimes I have to use it several times a day.

      One would think that with all the people with the same condition (itching and scaling of the ear canal) some dermatological solution would have been found.  I have had this condition all my life and have been to I don't know how many DRs and the same old solution is given (steroid cream).
