Large sore in ear canal
lmack16 posted:
My boyfriend has had a large blockage in his ear for at least a year and refuses to go to the doctor about it no matter how much I try talking him into it. He had me remove the blockage with a bobby pin. I removed most of the blockage and noticed that when it was removed there is a large sore underneath it. Any advice on what this could be or how to cure this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi lmack16,

While I cannot provide medical advice or diagnosis, you might find it helpful to look over this information on what can cause bumps in the ear. I suggest your boyfriend have this looked at to make sure that it is not a sign of a bad infection or serious condition. It could definitely be something that is harmless and will go away on its own, or it could need some form of treatment that a doctor can provide.

Best wishes,
