Itchy and burning ear lobe, entire ear burning, no change in routine. Suggestions?

My right earlobe has been itching and burning for about two weeks now. When it first started it itched sometimes but now days it itches and burns all the time. I m not allergic to anything and I have no idea how this started. It has little bumps on it and today my entire ear has been itching and burning (not just the earlobe but behind my ear and the rim of my ear. Doctor, do you have any suggestions for me?

Thanks for the query,

You have developed an allergic reaction,

Your description of itchy bumps matches with that.

As it is just on one ear probably it is a contact dermatitis.

You might have come in contact with a particular thing.

Apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

Also take an antihistamine tablet.

This will give you some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
