Only that the prior: "shave" caused irritation and inflammation before the definitive excision was performed. Atypical may also be part of the previous shave causing microscopic changes. It's gone now, so protect the area and avoid ultraviolet as it heals. Any sign of recurrence over the next year, return to your surgeon. But don't worry! and don't suntan! ...Read more

Update from my last question, I meant to say that I have inflammation in the ear canal and it's covered by some yellowish crusty stuff, is this a case of otitis media?, its been going on for 3 days, is it serious?

Otitis Externa: Inflammation of the canal is more likely otitis externa and it can have a discharge. Bacterial ear infxn needs to be treated with abx which will require a trip to a doctor. Externa can be serious in patients with diabetes or immunosuppression. Drainage for 3 days should be treated seriously. Likely you'll get a rx for abx drops +/- pills and perhaps a wik in the canal if bad. Hope this helps! ...Read more
