We will discuss about a very painful problem called ear pimples, but this is a problem that can be eliminated in a very simple fashion. By visiting a professional dermatologist, the problem will be identified and treated, with the help from surgical procedures or injections. Washing the ears with water and soap is effective way of eliminating moderate or mild ear acne. Also, use of topical medications will be needed in these cases as well. But know that treating this problem will need some time. This condition may need even six months to be fully eliminated and cured. Children are very prone to pimples in ear. But it is important to know that these pimples do not only develop on the skin and externally. They can occur on the back, neck or face as well. The child will suffer a lot of pain when the pimple erupts in the ear canal. Also, there is a possibility of a skin irritation, because children in these situations cannot restrain from picking the erupted pimple or acne. The irritation will be caused by the dirt gathered under the fingernails of the child, and it can lead to the infection of the ear as well. The surrounding skin of the boil is tender, and fills with pus once infected. This is a problem that will emit a lot of pain, but it will decrease once the pimple or a boil is drained, which will also reduce the swelling. Once the pimple bursts, it needs to remain clean in order to prevent an infection. It is also important not to touch or scratch the pimple until it bursts, since it can lead to an infection.
Use soap on an ear, which has been splashed or bathed with warm water. You can do this after a bath as well. When you are done, use warm water and rinse the ear gently. Do this two times a day and after exercising.
Topical medication that contains benzoyl peroxide needs to be used and it will eliminate the excess production of oil, which is responsible for the development of acne. If you are having whiteheads or blackheads, you can use medication containing resorcinol, sulfur or salicylic acid.
Before you apply the topical medication, give time for an ear to dry off. This will last from 5 to 15 minutes, and after they are up, put some lotion, gel or topical cream on your finger and place it on the entire ear's surface. Remember to cover the whole area and not only the one on which pimples are.
The oil from the hair can lead to breakouts if the oil reaches the ear. Use a non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic or oil-free shampoo every two days, since it should prevent this from happening.
In order to eliminate the possibility of oil reaching the ear, you should not cover your ears with hair.
