My question concerns the area on and around the ear lobes (pierced ears), on side of cheek, and behind the ear. This is the only area affected by skin growths that begin as an acne
-like infection, usually about one per year.
The problem is, unlike an acne breakout, these lumps do not go away over time. They change to a large (pea size) hardened nodule, or stay an active lump that produces a thick white excretion.
