    I have this tiny one in my left earlobe that flares up every now and then. I just happened to scratch my ear last night while in bed and couldn't stop picking at it, haha. Now it's hella sore today. I need to buy a heat compress because I've heard 10-15 minutes of heat can reduce inflammation and promote drainage.

    go to a physician and see if they can permanently fix it... usually surgery or medication. Would prescribe to you but u not living in south africa...

    No need to buy a heat compress. Use a warm, wet cloth or a spoon heated in hot water.
