you must be suffering from condition of external ear known as otitis externa which is nothing but infection of skin lined surface of ear canal. your history is suggestive of fungal infection which initially presents with itching leads to ear manipulation then its followed by bacterial infection
you can use antifungal antibacterial ear drops and in severe infections even oral antibiotics are required. pain killers can be used as required
its better to consult nearby ENT specialist for cleaning of fungal debris if required
