HI,Welcome with your query to HCM.
Based on the facts of your query,your daughter seems to have chronic bump with abscess discharging from it.Its due to the chronic infected tissue of the earlobe,which is not attended by a doctor.
Consult a Surgeon,
Who would asses and treat it by
Antibiotics/Anti-inflammatory/Surgical Drainage and followed by a planned
plastic repair of the earlobe.
Hope this would help you.
Welcome for any further query in this regard
