Question: Hi,

Recently one of my ear has become red with few white dots. These lasted for some time. Now they have disappeared. I have attached picture. I need to know if it's something to be worried about.

Thanks.

Brief Answer:
Might be due to insect bite

Detailed Answer:
Hi,thank you for posting your query on health care magic.
I have gone through your query and can understand your concern.
Looking at the picture attached by you,swelling and inflammation of the ear lobule is seen.It might be due to allergy,which might be due to insect bite.
If you are feeling itching,then you may find relief by taking Antihistaminic tablet like Cetrizine.
If right now,there is no problem,then it doesn't seems to much worry about.
Hope this answers your question.I would be happy to answer you in case of any further questions.
Take care.
