From this study (1 year ago):
With the exception of the itching, I understand many of my ongoing symptoms are most likely due to menopause. There seems to be no apparent cause or reason for the intermittent itching I experience over all parts of my body. I often experience intense itching in my right mid ear canal (itching is not due to bad hygiene).
