My outer ear (pinna) is kind of swollen/inflammed/fat, it wasn't as swollen as it is now, I've tried popping it and sticking it and it just got bigger... I'm going to go to my doctor soon, what could the problem be?
Sterilizing needle and sticking, squeezing it as hard as possible, and rubbing with alcohol.
