I keep getting a bump inside my ears. When I pick it, it starts bleeding. It goes away, but comes back in different place again. What can I do?

In brief: Depends
I've seen sensitive bumps that bleed in the ears before.
Sometimes they turn out to be a mild bacterial infection, sometimes it's an acne pimple in a funky spot, and sometimes it's fungus. In any case, have your doctor look at it.

I hear you. Time to get those ear bumps checked out -- especially since they keep coming back.
Good question.
