Puss near ear

Hi there, I know this sounds gross but I was wondering if anyone else has a tiny hole near their outer ear that occassionally drains a puss. I have always wore my hair to cover my ears but now I am just wondering what it is.

Is it inside your ear? Or on your face? I have never heard of this. It sounds like a cyst that has what is called an open sinus that allows the cyst to drain. I would go to the doctor asap.

Re: Puss near ear

I have read similar posts on here several times so yes others have it. There is a name for it but I don't remember. I do remember that it isn't a big deal though....
