Question: I have a hole in/on my ear, fluids come out...
|twitch418 - Thu Feb 16, 2006 10:27 pm|
I am 29, female I don't have a doctor, I have no insurance.
my question is, I have a 'hole' on/in my ear, it is NOT in my eardrum, it is on the surface. when I eat hot food, sometimes it 'leaks fluid'. also, there is fluid that comes out randomly. the fluid is mainly clear. sometimes it is a little thicker, mucousy and cloudy. rarely, and evenmore odd, is I can squeeze the area around it and a firmer 'body fluid' comes out, like the filling of a Acne pimple. I can stick an earring in it slightly, to the point where it will stay in there if I take my hand away. I have looked for what this is, and I can't find it anywhere. it doesn't heart, it does swell sometimes.

In most states there are programs and clinics that provide health access to people whom are not insured or are underinsured based on income, need, etc. I am unclear on the location of the ear you are referring to (earlobe, location-outer structure of the ear) etc. If the contents are foul smelling, have a cheesey appearance etc. this may be related to an Epidermoid Cyst. I encourage you to have the area in which you speak of evaluated by a physician.
