Why do I get pimples on my ear lobe?

Folliculitis

Pimples
Pimples are small collections of pus around hair follicles. Even though they are smaller than other locations on the back, chest or back, there are hair follicles of the ear lobe and these can develop folliculitis just like your cheeks and chin. Fortunately, they are usually smaller and less problematic.

I have a large pimple in my right ear lobe. how do i get rid of it?

Hot soaks

Ear
Apply warm to hot (be careful) wet packs to this every 2-3 hours for 15-20 minutes. It should gradually come to a head and open and drain. If it doesn't you may have to visit your local doctor.

Please tell me, could a pimple in the earlobe cause a ear infection?

Ear Lobe

Infection
Unlikely. I would keep the earlobe clean and make sure infection doesn't spread to other skin areas.

What causes pimples in your ears?

Plugged glands, etc.

Acne
The skin of the ear is no different than the skin of the rest of the face. It responds to the same hormonal stimulations. So it is not at all unusual for acne pimples to appear on the ears, and it is not unusual for them to respond to the same treatments we use for other areas.

A pimple inside the ear?

Can Happen

Pimples
Pimples are simply blocked up pores in the skin. Therefore, they can occur anywhere on the surface of the skin, including inside of the ear. However, if the spot has persisted for as long as a month, it is probably time to go see your doctor to get some help figuring out whether it is just a pimple or whether it is something else instead.
