I am a 21-year-old female with oily skin. I have a pimple in my ear. Today, I cleaned my ear with a q tip and it was rough slightly. I forgot about my pimple and popped it. Then I started to have some yellowish or clear juice coming from the pimple. Can I have an ear infection? I used a q tip to clean the inside of my ears and outside by rubbing alcohol. I am still worried about infection. I have attached pictures taken previously and now. This pimple took a long time to grow. It remained squishy and painful. I did not pop it. My dad did it and cleaned his instruments thoroughly. He told me that he cannot see any original pus coming from my ears.
Be gentle while cleaning your ears. Unnecessary trauma can increase the chances of getting an infection. You should clean the affected area using cotton and Povidone-iodine. Mix one part of Povidone with four parts of water. After cleaning, apply an antibiotic cream over it. Do it gently twice a day. Keep the area dry. After taking a bath, kindly dry your ears with a soft clean cloth. Have a follow-up after five days. If you notice any deterioration of the condition, kindly check it immediately.
