Indented Scar child outer ear canal
Coleren posted:

About 4 months ago my 8 year old had a pimple in her ear on the the inside, but not in the ear canal. The pimple bled and had some pus and took a month to go away. Now she has a large indentation where the pimple was. This skin seems more fragile right there and is redder. I asked a regular dr. about it after it healed and became an indentation and he said it looks like it was a blister. It's about the size of a sunflower seed. What can this be and should I be concerned? Please help.
