What causes pimples in your ears?

Plugged glands, etc.: The skin of the ear is no different from the skin of the rest of the face. It responds to the same hormonal stimulations.

I have a pimple in my ear how can I get the to go away so of that I can sleep?

Hot soaks: If the pimple is confined to the outer ear canal and you can see or feel it, I would recommend hot soaks.

Small bump on bottom of ear is a tad red it was hard like a pimple like bump but no puss or anything to come out of it what cause this will go away?

Developing a boil: Chances are u had a small bite or injury there & it has become infected. It may turn into a small boil/abscess or ur own resistance may nip it and it may heal on its own in a few days. Topical antibiotics will probably not help as the skin is intact.

About 202 things: Get a close-up photo up or see a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Philosophically, you may be told the lesion is a particularly suspicious for cancer in which case it can be "watched."if you would prefer to be rid of it, however, then don't be talked out of doing so. Plastic surgeons are very familiar with placement of a scar so that it becomes to the greatest degree invisible over time. ...Read more
