ENT Specialist 's  Response
It must be Chondrodermatitis nodularis (Chn, I suppose) which is usually because of pressure over the cartilaginous part of helix because of lack of subcutaneous tissue in that region. Usually requires treatment by a doctor, excision and may need the excision of a part of underlying cartilage. Regards
