Brief Answer:
Folliculitis of the external ear...

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for posting the query

After going through the history, I do believe that you could be having folliculitis of the external ear.

You would require broad spectrum oral antibiotics (combination of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid) along with local antiseptic cream such as mupirocin or neomycin sulphate.

The ear block may be due to presence of wax or crusts. Consult your doctor for a complete evaluation and management.

Hope I have answered your query; I'll be available for the follow up queries.
