Eval by a derm: I recommend having this evaluated by a dermatologist. Based on your description it's unclear if this is on the ear or on the scalp, but this sounds like it could be a cyst. If it's on the scalp, it's possible that it can be a swollen lymph node. It also depends on how long you had this. Rarely, these nodules can be a type of tumor. If it is persistent then I'd recommend having it evaluated. ...Read more

Blocked gland?: A sebaceous cyst is a collection of oily fluid that occurs when an oil gland is blocked. Some folks are more prone to them than other and they often appear on the neck, shoulders, and back. Try to avoid skin products that are oily. I would also stay away from transfats and bad oils, which is good for overall health. Doc can diagnose and if that's the case, remove it. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Cotton ear buds: should they not be used at all or just infrequently ?

Cotton ear buds: should they not be used at all or just infrequently ?

For what ????: Ear wax is made in the outer half of the canal & will usually fall out over time or can be pried out under direct vision. Cotton swabs will push the wax further into the canals for kids< ~ 9yo and lead to cerumen packed canals that become painful & obscure evaluation of the ear drum. I encourage parents to leave the ears alone & let me remove any wax i need to during exams. ...Read more

I have a hole in my upper ear, just wondering what  it is. I was born with it?

Ear dimple: If the hole is in the soft part of the ear adjoining the temple, it probably had to do with a part of the embryo that did not disappear during your development. It often is a dimple or pit. If you can express fluid from it, it may be connected to a tube under the skin. Ask your doctor whether it is a dermal dimple or sinus. ...Read more

Hi I just read the ringing in ears is due to tinnitus.Any medicine, drop that can make it better.What can I do now!!!

Investigate.: There's really no medication, sight unseen, that can help tinnitus universally. If your tinnitus is due to inflammation, then there may be a medication that can help. If your tinnitus is due to damage, then this may be permanent. We won't know for sure without an investigation by an ENT physician. ...Read more
