Scratch: The inner ear has soft skin just like the inside of our nose. It's possible the skin was scratched some during the removal or the bead had sat long enough on the skin to cause some erosion. I would warm the drops between your palms for 3-5 minutes to get it closer to body temperature before using them again. Good luck!
