I have small inflamed area on my concha with node swelling. The node is minimally tender. Antibiotic ointment on concha has not helped?

In brief: CONCHA INFLAMMATION

WHERE, EXACTLY, ON THE CONCHA IS THIS? YOU MAY HAVE TO SEE YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT THIS.
YOU MIGHT NEED AN ORAL ANTIBIOTIC.

In brief: See a dermatologist

Or ENT DR. Topical antibiotic is useless.
You do not even know if it is infection. If it is on the rim and wakes you from sleep, it may be chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis. If it bleeds it may be a skin cancer. The DR will identify it and treat accordingly.
