Poor Eustachian tube: If you cannot equalize pressure in your ears, your ears will bias towards negative pressure as the lining of your middle ear sucks in some of the gases.

A 19-year-old male asked:

Every so often, one of my ears (either one, but never both at the same time) turns bright red and feels very warm. No other symptoms. Should I worry?

Don't worry: It is probably nothing but a vascular tendency like blushing. But an exam might discover if it is a sign of polychondritis which is rare and very unlikely w/out other symptoms. If you find yourself worried that it's more than simple blushing - have a doctor check for a cause. Here's info on the rare condition. http://www.drugs.com/health-guide/polychondritis.html If it fits, have an exam. Best!
