71 yr old female. Pain on outside portion of left ear. Had herpes zoster virus of left ear 15 yrs ago. No blisters. Symptoms began last night.?
Possible herpes: If she did not have anything outside the ear look inside the ear canal you may find one or two, if you find them that is it. If you do nt search for other reasons.
Does facial palsy always present with ramsay hunt syndrome, I have all other symptoms, only pain is to the back of my head and neck. Blisters in ear etc?
RHS: Facial paralys can present few days before or after onset of other symptoms in rhs. Acute facial paralysis is the hallmark of rhs, but the syndrome as described by dr. Hunt can have varying presentation, making the history and physical examination the most important tool. Other nerves in close proximity to the facial nerve can be affected by vzv. Focus is on differential diagnosis and treatment.
I have blister like bumps on my chin. They are filled with clear fluid. No head or pus. And they seem to spread. No other symptoms.
See a dermatologist: Without seeing these and getting a full history, including a list of any medications you may be on it is impossible to speculate on a diagnosis.
Injury or infection: Have you injured it? If so, blood can accumulate under the skin and cause permanent swelling/deformity (cauliflower ear). It needs to be seen right away and sometimes drained. If not, it may be infected. Do you have ear canal drainage or pain? Ear canal infections can contribute. Did you sleep on it in an uncomfortable way? Lots of questions, I know, but it might be good to see a doctor.

My 5-week premature son was born with floppy ears. He is 1 now. His helix regions are firmer but still a bit soft/droopy. Will they harden with time?

I have what you would call spock ear. Where there isn't a fold in the helix part of the ear. Please give me advice. Surgeons I've been 2cant fix it?
Spock Ear: A spock ear (or stahl's ear) has an extra fold going backwards to a point a little like the star trek character. A board certified plastic surgeon may be able to reshape the ear, but it will depend on the specifics of the deformity. For newborns, molding can help in the first few days after birth. After that, only cosmetic surgery can help.See 1 more doctor answer
I have a bug bite on my ear (helix) I guess, It hurts when I touch it with a little force, how can I get rid of it?
Strange waxy build up - not in my ear canal, but in the flap (where the helix folds in). Usually dry, sometimes moist, ALWAYS painful to remove?
Dermatitis: It's best that you see your Family Doc or Dermatologist for evaluation. Or ask for video Virtual Consult w/HealthTap doc who can see what you're referring to. Common causes that might explain your post are eczema (sensitive skin) & psoriasis. Or perhaps you have an untreated infection. Regardless, see your doc for evaluation, diagnosis & treatment. Good luck!
The underside of the helix of both my right and left ears are sore, red, and are oozing clear liquid that eventually crusts over, what might this be?

Why is my left ear suddenly red, hot, and burning? Redness is mostly on scalpa, helix, and anthelix. Not so much on lobe
Possibly flushing: This could simply be flushing, or blushing, some people seem to do this more in their ears. If it is painful for a while, you could be showing signs of relapsing polychondritis. This sometimes shows up in the throat as well. Different areas of cartilage can become inflamed for no apparent reason in this disease. If this is happening, see an ENT or a rheumatologist
Several days ago I burned the helix of my ear with a hair straightening iron, now I am experiencing shooting pains through the cartilage of my ear?
Depends on size: And depth of burn. If it has extended down to cartilage, it could be serious. Get to a surgeon or plastic surgeon right away.
I have a small painless bony lump above each of my ears (on top of root of helix), may I know what is that? Just bones or something else?
If it's: Symmetrical (equal or almost equal both sides) chances are its your skull! (Phrenology I the study of such bumps which used to me a form of medical diagnosis) Hope this helps Dr Z
