Does this sound like an ear infection or allergy?

.....2.11DD has been rubbing her nose upwards with the flat of her hand and rubbing at both ears - more so in the past few days but probably occassionly for the past month. She only did it when she was concentrating but recently it is most of the time.

She has no others symptoms and she doesn't seem in distress with it. She said it was itchy sometimes.

Wasn't sure whether it was an infection or an allergy? I haven't introduced any new foods recently. Could it be a dust mite allergy? She has mild eczema which seems to have flared up around her bottom cheeks recently.

Cn't get doc appointment till tomorrow so wanted to check on here with you guys till I get her checked out.
