Alopecia: Juan. It seems to not be normal. There are some forms of hair loss that area autoimmune - meaning your body is attacking the hair follicle.

Don't worry, check: Is it a recent sunburn? If so, it's probably just healing skin.

Either way, it's a good idea to let the dermatologist see you since you spend time in the sun. ...Read more

What should I do if I have poison ivy behind my ear and keep finding spots on my face, what is the fastest way to get rid of it?
Unusual: It is unusual to have poison ivy confined to behind the ears and face. I wonder if you actually have an allergic contact reaction to costume jewelry (ear rings?) instead. If you apply perfume behind your ears, this can be another potential contact allergen. See a dermatologist if this fails to resolve. ...Read more

Black skin spots: Without a picture, it is hard to say. These could be many things, including benign nevus, seborrheic keratosis, or solar lentigos (due to sun exposure), to name a few.

I also grew a spot right behind my ear! Is getting big and I can't press it cause its painful. Any solutions?
Hard to say: Your question is not clear- if it is a skin lesion, at your age it is not likely anything of concern. If it is below the skin, about 1cm or so in size, and tender, it is probably a (benign) lymph node, which pops up in response to infection, skin lesion or inflammation, etc. I would probably leave it alone- don't mash on it, etc. If it doesn't go away on its own within a week or 2, get it checked. ...Read more

If it is hair that grew backwards she will be able to treat the folliculitis and possibly drain the pus.. ...Read more

Possible: The most important question to be asked is "do you have a hearing loss? " If there has been no change in your hearing, it is unlikely that you have an ear infection. The spot behind your ear also is probably not the source of your pain unless it is a painful lymph node. Referred pain to the ear is most commonly the result of pain originating in the teeth, jaw joint and throat. See an ENT doctor ...Read more
