From your description, these are most probably sebaceous cysts. It will always be better to consult a local skin specialist for an accurate diagnosis. You may try a medicated skin cream containing an antibacterial, antifungal and steroid formulation after cleaning the area with warm water. Sebaceous cysts behind the ear will require professional help for removal. There are many ways such as traditional surgery, electrocautery, cryosurgery, radiofrequency and laser assisted removal.
