my husband stretches his ears with gauges and this last time he stretched the bottom of his lobe became black and thinned with bleeding and pus..help

Dr. Soheila Rostami
Specializes in Ophthalmology
Tell him don't do it: Why does he stretches his ears? He has probably injured his ear tissue and then bled and form a hematoma and then it became infected. He needs to see someone and most likely the hematoma needs to be drained and he needs to be on antibiotics.
