Hello. They might be due to allergy or sudden irritation and or stimulation of the vagus nerve or also as a reflex mechanism when some foreign particle enters the respiratory track. In such situation, use melted ghee 1 spoon along with hot water, drink sip by sip. Avoid cleaning of ears too many times, which stimulate the nerve.
