I have this lump inside my earlobe and its painful when I touch it, and when I press it looks purple and red through the skin. Has anyone else had something like this ?

Yes. It went away on it's own. I get it randomly

By any chance do you have earrings?

Still if you are concerned, you should get it checked out.

I've had something similar. I think it was a cyst - I self diagnosed it so I don't know how accurate it is. All I could do is wait although it was mildly painful (which is why I didn't bother going to the GP). However it's always best to check with your GP because it could be something else - so if it's painful go to the GP.

I think it might be a cyst to be honest. But I might go to the doctor anyway

I've had this. I have this really nasty habit of leaving things (much longer than I should) before I go to the GP to see if they go away on their own. This did!

My strep throat 2 years ago that landed me in hospital when 10 days on antibiotics would have shifted it earlier on was another story .. but never mind!

And it disappears on its own too? Then you just have to wait it out if so.

I don't think it fully disappears it just flares up now and then

Get it checked, just in case but I think it's harmless and probably not much you can do.

I get that lump sometimes as well. I went to the doctor it seems that I had ear infections. He gave me antibiotics and it has been over a year since I have had a ear infection. It is generally harmless if it is that painful you might want to go to the doctor, to get it checked out.
