What could be the purple spot on the inner lobe of the ear?

I just noticed a purple spot on the inner lobe of my 11 mos old s ear. She hasn t had any accidents that I know of and she is in good health w no signs of illness and has no history of health problems. She hasn t really ever been sick. She s on an alternative vaccination schedule and has had her series of Rota, Dtap, HIB, PC and one Polio shot. Last time she had vaccs and saw the dr was in May. The mark doesn t seem to hurt her when I touch it. It looks almost like someone put a purple marker in her ear, but doesn t change color or diminish when I washed her war in the bath. It wasn t there when she woke up this morning but I noticed it later in the day. She is not acting abnormally.
