The American Academy of Otolaryngology -- Head and Neck Surgery says potential triggers include:

  • Spending time in a moist environment, such as swimming, bathing or showering.
  • Exposure to bacteria, as may be found in hot tubs or polluted water.
  • Buildup of hairspray or hair dye inside the ear.
  • Injuring skin inside the ear canal.
  • Development of conditions inside the ear canal, including eczema or seborrhea.
