Pimple In Ears

There are 3 zones when it comes to removing a pimple in your ear and these zones are allocated blue, red and yellow.

  • Blue (safest but still tricky) leave to pop on its own accord or use this.
  • Red (can be hard and painful) Ideally if you have a pimple here you do not want to go any further into the ear. I DO NOT RECOMEND SQUEEZING THIS ZONE (RED AND YELLOW)
  • Yellow (if you are experiencing this deep into your ear canal I strongly suggest you see a doctor or skin specialist)


As you can see the Ear Drum is very complex-ed and very sensitive. Pimples and spots do arise in this area occasionally and can be very painful, sore and uncomfortable. If you have applied some sort of spot cream to the pimple area then you shouldn’t have to do much more. If it in reach grab some gloves, tissue or cotton buds to cover your fingertips and gently squeeze the perimeter of the spot but before this soak a cloth in warm water, apply to the area to open the pores and make the skin less vulnerable to damage (just in case).  What You Should Know Before You Squeeze Your Spots (I Wouldn’t Recommend Squeezing Pimples Or Spots)

Just like you would squeeze a normal spot or pimple but using cotton buds would give you better reach and prevent infection. Using a pimple cream like this one from Amazon will dry out any pimple in the ear no matter what zone and prevent it returning.
