My five year old male child child suddenly complained of a sharp pain in ear lobe pointing to the cartilage in his right ear. Closely examined could not find any insect bite mark or inflamation, got relief from applying an ice pack what can be the cause of this.

No signs of inflammation or trauma in ear lobe means hardly anything to worry about.Watch for any swelling in ear lobe near helix of lobe as a preauricular sinus infection may be the cause
