Hi,

The presence of pus indicates infection by bacteria. It is best to know the cause of the itching first. Allergies for example to food, or the use of soap, can cause itching. In addition, itching can also be caused by:

dry skin conditions insect bites bacterial infections of the skin, such as impetigo, stress or anxiety can also worsen itching. If you scratch the itchy area until a sore occurs, and if the wound is not treated properly, germs will enter and cause an infection, which can be characterized by redness, swelling, pain, warmth to the touch, or pus appears.

Try to keep your body clean, including the area behind the ear. Avoid scratching if it itches, so as not to add to the infection. Avoid ingredients that can cause allergies/irritations. Do not exchange personal items, such as towels, hats.

It's best to check with your doctor for this condition. So that a direct examination of the area behind the ear can be carried out, by knowing the history and symptoms experienced. The doctor will provide appropriate treatment according to the underlying cause. Antibiotics will be given to treat wounds caused by bacterial infections.
