So in my ear lobules appear small lumps the size of pimples that hurt when pressed and itchy, is this really a pimple, doc?

1 Answer:

Hello Nabila Rebi, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Lumps in the ear are often found and are generally not dangerous. This can be due to the following:


- Furuncle / boils: is a lump that is red, swollen, and contains pus. Due to bacterial infections.

- Abscess: collection of pus in certain body parts.

-Cysts (fluid-filled sacs) in the form of sebaceous cysts or epidermoid cysts

- Tumor

It is better to avoid squeezing the lump because it can cause inflammation and keep the body clean (including the ears). Then consume nutritious foods, get adequate rest, manage stress well, consume over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol (only if you feel pain). These complaints are generally harmless and can go away on their own, but if you feel severe pain in the ear, the size of the lump is getting bigger, making changes in the shape of the ear, festering, hearing loss occurs, then you should visit a doctor for further examination.


Thank you, hope that helps.
