Sore ear outside of the ear canal- not an ear infection.

I had this pain just up from my ear lobe but inside IYKWIM (not ear canal). It hurt on and off for a few weeks in August, then disappeared. Last Wednesday it returned. I have been moaning to DH to have a look and he has found nothing. Tonight he said he could see what looks like the size of a piece of sweetcorn lump with a slightly yellow lump.

What can I do? DH tried to squeeze it but I nearly shot through the ceiling with pain. But as DH said, its hasn't got a head on it!

It needs a bit longer to fester mature.

Warm compresses. Then get ready with the sterilised pin. Or go to a Walk in centre if you have no sense of adventure grin Sounds ouchy though.

LOL at pus porn!

It is very sore, can't even lie on that side with my head resting on a pillow.
