Something bite me back of my ear is red just red don't hurt. .....I want to know if is a spiders or something bad?

Sometimes it is very difficult to get antibiotics into some of the sinuses and surgery may be required. If you haven't been to an ENT yet I would suggest that is the next step. Although I wouldn't wish surgery on anyone, because I have had it, you may need it. Good luck. ...Read more
