I'm a 24 year old female-A couple of mon
ths ago I woke up with a painful pea to marble sized <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> under
the skin on
my ear. It is located right where my ear con
nects to my head, on
the bottom. Like if I were to pull my earlobe away from my head, it is in that "flap" of skin. Because it was painful and hard, I assumed it was a boil as I have had these in the past. I treated it with warm washclothes and heating pads, but the lump
never softened or drained, however, the pain did go away.
