Suggest Treatment For A Lump Behind The Ears
Need more information regarding symptoms and preferably also an image
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr. kakkar(Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.
I would like to know, do you have any symptoms like pain in that region ?tenderness over it?fever?
I also request you to kindly upload an image of the affected area in REPORTS SECTION so that I am able to guide you better.
Either bacterial skin infection Or infected sebaceous cyst
Thank you. I have viewed the images. Though not very clear images but the area definitely looks infected - perhaps a bacterial skin infection/ furuncle with cellulitis OR an infected sebaceous cyst. Based on the present conditions i suggest a course of an oral antibiotic e.g either Amoxicillin or Cephalexin for a week. Topically you may use an antibacterial ointment e.g mupirocin ointment or neosporin ointment, twice daily for a week. Oral antibiotics are prescription medications and I suggest that you visit a general practitioner in your region for the needful.
Thank you. It is a bacterial infection - most commonly due to staph. It can arise as a one off thing in anyone.. Oral antibiotics and topical antibacterial cream would take care of it.
