Lumps Appear On The Front Of The Auricle?
Hello, I want to ask in my ear like a small red bump and when it is pressed it hurts … what kind of illness is that? What should I do? What is the best treatment like that? Thank you doctor
Good evening, thanks for the question
Lumps on the earlobe is a fairly common complaint, where the causes can vary, including:
Is a lump that contains dead skin cells trapped. These cysts appear as small lumps of skin-colored to reddish. Cyst size is relatively small and includes benign. This condition is also not dangerous, where complaints are usually due to minor appearance disturbance. This cyst does not require special treatment because it can recover spontaneously.
Acne can occur on the auricle due to the production of oil, sweat, or excessive dead cells and clogging pores in the skin of the ears. Pimples should not be touched and if it does not go deflating should consult with a doctor.
Folliculitis looks like a reddish lump accompanied by complaints of itching or pain. This condition is most often caused by staphylococcal germs. Complaints can vary from mild to very disturbing.
As a preventative measure, clean the outer portion of the skin of the earlobe properly. If the complaint gets heavier, for example, gets bigger, or is accompanied by pain, or a lump ruptures, then do a further check with the doctor for adequate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
