Hello! I've had this strange patch of hair under my ear my entire life! It looks very goofy and I'm just curious if anyone else has anything like this/what exactly is this/what could have caused it?!
note: there is only a patch underneath my right ear, not my left one!
thank you everybody!
Thanks for your Reply!

Dear whenlifegivesyoulemons, Is the skin under the hair a normal color or darker than normal? Did the patch change at all when you went through puberty? For example, did the skin get thicker or the hair grow thicker? Thanks for sharing this with us!
Hello Dr. Buchness! Sorry for the late reply. The skin is a normal color and did not change at all when I went through puberty. It's been something with me since birth. The hair is thicker now at 21 years of age from what I remember as a kid
