Ear itches inside so bad!!

The past couple of days I've been really sick. I have a terrible sore throat and now my inner ear is itching so bad agh! Not like all the way in but the outside part leading in. I was just at the doctor on Sunday and he checked my ears and said they looked fine so why the frick does my ear itch? Could it be from my sinuses? Also any remedies to stop it from itching because itching it just makes it hurt 😩
