I had a pimple in my ear and now it has started thumping inside

a few months back, I had a pimple, or cyst show up on the edge of my ear canal . It swelled up badly popped and healed. However, ever since then, for some time now my ear has been feeling as if it is plugged. I can hear fine, but now it has started thumping inside and it s driving me crazy. It seems as if it s twitching inside or something. I am an audio engineer so it worries me tremendously...

ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hi Dusto Marro,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
The blockage of the ear can be because of the accumulation of cerumen (wax) inside the ear canal or an Eustachian tube block secondary to cold/flu. You need to consult your ENT specialist for a thorough examination of the ear.
Take care

I picked what felt like a little pimple inside my ear, pressure relieved. Then later in the day (~12 hours) I went to rub my ear and a huge crust nugget came out. Now the site is sore, to the point that even pushing on the outside of my ear hurts. What causes this? What was the nugget thing that came out?

How long do you think this may take to resolve?

Hi Doctor,My 2month old son had colds a few days back and now its totally gone. Since gooey discharges in the ear are commonly caused by colds (and other illnesses), i wanna know if i need to be alarmed with the gooey ear discharge i saw in his left ear? at first i saw some crusty substance (for 2days) in his ear just outside his ear canal and in the inner part of his ear flap or pinna, and late yesterday i started to see some liquid or more of a gooey substance in that same ear canal, it does look like a thick mucous and its yellowish in color, beneath it is a creamy liquid substance that smells. Could it be from the colds he catched few days back? or Could have water gone in his ears while i bathed him and caused it? i bathe him every day and call me crazy but im the kind of mum who always check on my baby and i definitely make sure he is clean all the time. this gooey substance in his ear comes out frequently, i couldnt leave his ear unattended in half an hour and its there again.Please help coz Im not sure if it does hurt him coz my baby is normally a bit fussy, i cant tell which is which that causes his fuzziness.Thank you!- dee
