Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on earlobe


Avatar m tn I've also be told it could be a sebaceous cyst and it will go away on its own and to try to treat it with a heat compress and i did it for about a months straight without any results besides soggy ears i have no idea what to do about this Im so scared of the doctor does anyone have any idea what this is or how long it will stay or just what will make it go away
Avatar m tn Lump behind the ear could be an abscess, folliculitis (hair follicle infection), lipoma (localized collection of fat), a cyst, lymph node or a neurofibroma (localized harmless swelling in of nerve and connective tissue). Since there is pain on pressing only chances of abscess and hair root infection are less. Still a diagnosis cannot be confirmed on net. Its good you are seeing your doctor on Thursday. Take care!
148691 tn?1260198503 it was watery and built up between her ear and the pin behind the earring, but tonight I saw an abscess! =( I don't think it hurts or anything, she doesn't pull on it or grab it... only when i was trying to look at it... so I put that saline solution (antiseptic) that they gave me when they did the piercing to cleanse it. Should I call the doctor???? should I put some antibiotic ointment on it?? i mean, i know you can't use just anything on a baby....
Avatar n tn For 2 weeks I have been dealing with a very painful abscess on my ear, where after alot of research and several trips to a local medical clinic and ER, I have found that what I have is an abscess in the Preauricular pit/sinus. I have been given 3 rounds of antibiotics, one of which I am still taking (Clindamyacin). I have yet to see any improvement from taking the antibiotics, so I went to the ER yesterday where they attempted to do and Incision and Drainage procedure.
Avatar n tn It Seems Like I've Had This For Years, Just Recently However It's Been Hurting A Lot, Feels Like There's 3 Bumps Under The Skin And I Want To Get A knife Or My Ear Pierced To See If Anything Comes Out Cause I'm Tired Of It Hurting As Much as It Does. There Are No Visible Blemishes On It, And No Rash.
Avatar n tn I'm a 24 year old female-A couple of months ago I woke up with a painful pea to marble sized lump under the skin on my ear. It is located right where my ear connects 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.
Avatar n tn I found a small hard lump just below the earlobe, like where the ear meets the side of my head. Any idea what this could be? I am kind of panicking incase it's something sinister. I do recall I actually had a spot on my ear a while back (not sure if the 2 are linked but it's something to consider). Any help/advice would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn A lump that feels warm and is present on the side of the face (underneath where the earlobe attached to my face) could be a swollen lymph node or a chronically inflamed parotid gland or a parotid abscess (localized collection of pus) or an abscess not involving the parotid gland. This may need to be drained, treated with antibiotics and you must consult a doctor immediately. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hi! You probably have a boil or abscess on your ear lobe. Neck lymph nodes can be the result of tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. If you had flu like symptoms initially then it could be due to infectious mononucleosis too. In your case in all probability it is the outer ear infection.
Avatar f tn Hi, I was wondering what could cause lumps on your neck. I have had a lump on my neck that originally I thought was just a pimple not fully grown yet but it is still there after more then a week, it is painful when I move my neck around or touch it or lay on it but it doesn't seem to move. Also, as of today I've noticed a second lump on the same side of my neck but this one is just starting and it's just behind my left earlobe so you can't see it if you look at me.
Avatar n tn Almost a week ago i woke up with a small bump on the back of my earlobe where the cart ledge is. It was sore for about 3 days, its not sore anymore but still there. It looks to be red when i take a picture with the camera. I stress easily so its been freaking me out. Could it be a bug bite or a cyst ?

About maybe a month ago, a hard little pimple appeared behind my left earlobe, on the flap of skin that connect it to my head. I left it alone, thinking that it would go away. Well, I must have irritated it beyond all reason, because it is now a fairly big-ish lump. It's a little squishy.
Avatar n tn It showed up a couple of days ago right in the crease where the ear meets the head, just above my earlobe. The bump is about the size of a pea and just under the skin. It aches constantly and is especially painful when touched. What could it be? It's not a pimple, and I'm fairly certain it's not a swollen lymph node, because I've had swollen lymph nodes behind my ears before and they were never this painful.
Avatar n tn i have in the past had a bump appear, only to shrink and harden and eventualy i will forget about it, i had one on my upper eyelid. back to the ear bump, physicaly i feel fine, the bump feels a little warm when i mess with it. i have recently used a foaming earwax remover, i dont know if that matters.
Avatar n tn For the past two years I have been getting painful recurring face infection (boil) on different parts of my face (my chin, above eye, on rim of ear, on skin just in front of earlobe... anywhere. I feel one coming on and I call in a perscription for Dicloxacillin 500 mg and take 4 a day (28 pills). It goes away and I am fine for 3 to 4 months and I get another one different place. The Dr.
Avatar n tn I have been in 2 severe car accidents in the past year, my health is getting worse, I am starting to have cysts (all over - in my veins on my arm, under my chin, my earlobe, my groind area on both sides, etc) and I have not had my peroid in well over 3 months but i am not pregnant. I am really starting to get scared cause I am very very tired lately and I feel like no matter how my DR treats me for my accidents it makes it worse.
Avatar n tn it sounds like when you sleep your jaw is resting on the right side more, so that is why you have more presure on that side. all you'll need is a fitted night splint, and you should feel better right away. ear pain is usually associated with tmj. good luck.
Avatar n tn Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area. This tearing is not related to intercourse since my husband and I are unable to do that due to the pain it causes me. There is no real pain otherwise. I am getting some minor bleeding when I poop due to the tears in the anal area.
Avatar f tn All of a sudden you will wake up and realize that you have a tiny little bit more sensation than you did the day before, and then the next week it will feel like a tiny bit more has come back, and so on and so on. It takes time but the body is a very complex machine. Remember.....the itchy crawly feeling is a good sign! I'll be very interested to hear your progress.
