I've had this thing for years. Its this little hard bump under the skin on my ear lobe. It's about right where a standard ear piercing would be.I'm a 20 year old male now but I remember this thing coming up since I was at least 14. It's only on my right ear and is very sore to the touch. It comes up, stays for about 2 weeks, and then will disappear for anywhere from a week to months at a time, only to return at a later time.I normally just deal with it but now I noticed it coming back up again yesterday and its sore. Google fails me. Anyone else have any clues?
