Red and itchy ears?
suicidemission posted:
Yesterday, at about midday, I noticed that my left and right tragus were a little itchy. I dismissed it, figuring it was just a passing thing. Unfortunately, later in the day, I noticed that despite having not touched them for a few hours, they were still red.

My right ear then extended to my earlobe that was red and itchy. Very, very small bumps formed just behind my earlobe on the same ear.

Just the beginning of the inside of my left ear is itchy and feels like there's some sort of pressure building inside of it. When I lean over for longer than maybe five seconds, my ears feel pressure building up.

I'm going to the doctor's tomorrow morning, but it doesn't feel good, and I wanted to know if anybody could figure out what this is. I haven't done anything abnormal. I generally stay inside (although I was outside for most of yesterday, and it was a fairly hot day out). I haven't changed shampoos, detergents, facial washes -- I haven't changed anything. I'm not totally sure what's going on though.
