What could cause rash, blistering/swelling, and scabbing on ear.. With no history of burns, scrapes, insect bites, or contact with allergens?

Great blood supply: The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and so healing occurs rapidly. Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and veins expand to carry bad stuff away.
