What is the treatment for swollen bruise in the earlobe?

My left earlobe is slightly swollen. It looks like a bruise of some sort, but I have no feeling at all there. There s no pain, no itchy feeling. I ve been told it could be if I pinched my earlobe before I could have cut off blood flow, but it just appeared this morning. I haven t touched my ears at all recently.

Hello,

The symptoms can be related to a micro-trauma during sleep. You can try a few home remedies to bring down the swelling. A cold compress can decrease blood flow to the area, which can ease swelling symptoms. If you suspect you have a cyst on your earlobe, a warm compress can help. If your earlobe is painful, over-the-counter pain medication can also be helpful.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
