Ear Problem

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had a pimple on the back of my ear. I popped it and i thought it was going away and it turned into a bigger bump that has a hard skin over it and it won't pop or anything I had this problem for 1 or 2 years. What should I do?

    And nothing will come out when i squeeze it. It makes me feel weird and makes me uncomfortable around people.

    Get to a dermatologist and if you can't see a specialist immediately you should go to your primary (GP). You shouldn't be popping anything. You may have infected the area. Please see a doc as soon as you can.

    May I ask who was it who diagnosed you? Was it your GP or did you see s specialist? If you are not comfortable with their answer I hope you are able to get a second opinion. Is the site red or swollen? Does it hurt?

    If you can swing it, I would have a dermatologist take a look at it. Don't know how long you've had it but if it is red and hurting and it isn't an ordinary pimple (and it doesn't sound as though it is) then maybe it's time to see a specialist. A dermatologist would be a good place to start.
