Thanks for the query

It certainly sounds like contact dermatitis but since it is behind the ear it could be a viral infection as well, so i need to know a few further details in order to come to a better conclusion

1. Does the area pain extensively? is it itchy?
2. Could you please attach a photo as this will help me diagnose accurately
3. Has this happened before?

Please get back to me, I am awaiting your reply
