Lump In Front Of The Ear (near The Cheek) Not In The Auricle?
I have asked and answered by Dr. Nining Yuliastuti, he has never asked anyone about my complaints, but that is different if the doctor said on the earlobe, but I mean a bump on the ear canal (near cheeks) not on the ears and the lumps are rather big, how do you treat it? But there aren’t any effects like fever or anything.
Good afternoon, thanks for the question on HealthReplies.com.
For complaints of a lump in front of the earlobe close to the cheek, and there are no effects or any other complaints, can be thought of several diagnoses of the disease. More information is needed to determine the diagnosis, such as whether the lump is accompanied by pain, swelling, and red.
Chances are if there is pain, swelling and red meaning that there may be an inflammatory process that occurs in the skin around the ear, the inflammation process can be caused by bacterial infection and others. Another possibility, if not accompanied by pain, swelling and red lumps may be derived from the fat tissue or muscle can accumulate. In addition, these lumps can only be as additional accessories from the beginning I thought there was already in the person, so when the time of the appearance of the lump also needs to be known.
To treat the lump in front of the auricle, you need to know the exact cause, if the cause of the infection is of course the drug given must be an antibiotic that must use a doctor's prescription, it will be given in the form of an antibiotic ointment and if necessary take medication too. Meanwhile, if the cause is not an infection but a buildup of fatty tissue or additional accessories that do not provide complaints or effects of pain, fever, redness and so on, if it does not interfere in your opinion, it may only need to be monitored first and consider whether the lump is getting bigger or causing other complaints. If it is very annoying, you should check with the nearest doctor or the dermatologist or the nearest ENT doctor to get further explanation, diagnosis and treatment.
Things that can be done at home to reduce or prevent further illness include:
carry out supervision and pay attention to whether the lump is getting bigger quickly or not, if it gets bigger quickly immediately to the doctor
- Maintain cleanliness of the ear area and not prying ears by itself, you should clean your ears at the nearest health center or health facility
- keep the hands, self and the environment clean
-if necessary, can compress with warm water around the ear bumps
Thus, hopefully useful :)
