Ear Lobe Pain Help

I have the exact same pain as most of the community on this site. My feeling was that warm compresses would help and this did help within minutes.
I soaked some gauze compresses in hot water and applied to my ear. Other heat sources may work as well but I found that the wetness was very soothing.
I should mention that I did wait until I was experiencing the pain and rushed over to have an ENT physician examine the area. By the time I got into the examining room the pain was gone and he could not see anything. It is somewhat reassuring that no one in this forum mentioned any concern that this was potentially serious so I am somewhat relieved.
