How to Treat an Ear Cyst | Ear Problems

Occasionally, a patient might be told that
they have a cyst in their ear. This is a term that is very general and somewhat
vague in terms of diseases of the ear. We’re all familiar with little cysts that
we get on our skin and certainly you can get a cyst like that anywhere on your earlobe,
or even in your outer ear canal. You must remember that the skin of your outer
ear canal is exactly the same skin that lines the surface of your face. It just runs down your ear canal. Any type of eczema for example that you can
get on your skin, you can get in your ear canal. Any type of little cyst, or pimple that you
can get on your skin, you can get in your ear canal. When we speak about ear cysts however, in
general we are talking about a cyst in the middle ear and that is called a cholesteatoma. It is a skin line cyst. What happens inside the cyst, is dead skin
is accumulating. And that dead skin builds up and the cyst
gets larger and larger. Eventually, it can rupture through the eardrum
and cause infections or hearing loss. Those cysts represent a surgical problem. They cannot be treated medically. They must be removed. Oftentimes, these cholesteatomas will become
infected. They will be treated with antibiotics, either
by mouth or as drops, to remove the infection. However, if the cyst is not surgically removed,
the infection will recur. So ultimately, cholesteatoma is a surgical
problem. It must be taken care of surgically.

    All my life I was prone to cysts and one day I got a cyst inside (quite deep) in my ear canal. Without a medical aid I grated some laundry soap (Called sunlight soap in South Africa) into a little warm water with plenty sugar dissolved into it. Made a paste by adding a little dettol / savlon antiseptic liquid of a consistency not too runny but enough to force out of the syringe into my ear canal. The following morning I was so relieved it had gone down. The following few weeks thereafter the soap mixture worked it's way out of my ear canal. I didn't want to make it too runny as I was scared it might make it's way to the brain but it never did. Since I started taking 3 sips daily of freshly juiced aloe to clean out my colon and blood my cysts have never returned and I will continue my 3 sips daily for the rest of my life.

    I have had a pea size cyst behind my ear lobe for 20 or so years! Ever since I was in NC and stung by a Buffalo Mosquito at times it weeps puss and is painful! These so called P.A.s do nothing but look at it and say "It will go away" it does not! even with Antibiotics hence it is INCYSTED ! And the so called BOP "doctors" are the worse! for almost 20 years they did nothing! I now free of the oppressive prison system need it removed IF I had Novacaine I would do it myself or get my girlfriend to cut the BB sized core out! I need a qualified Dr. that does what I want not what he wants like these government make believe "doctors" it could have been done decades ago if anyone listened to me(they don't) I have Medicade that's it ! I don't need a bunch of gd spend thrifts not allowing me to get it removed and then there is a huge one on my right cheek! Same deal! Help!

    Hi I had a pimple in my ear but at the beginning of the ear hole since I was a kid and now I'm 20 and it got enlarged and infected. I got PRID from Walmart for a different cyst. I slapped it on my ear. The same day I took a nap. Woke up it had a head already. The same night I went to the bathroom. I pushed down with one finger, and out came these root like hard stuff. CM long each push 2 times. I put more on and push this morning. More hard stuff but only a little. I should see a doc but no money. It js significantly smaller and less painful and emptying in less than 24 hours.
