Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
Those ears represent angioedema of the pinnae (ear flaps) - another symptom of a hypersensitivity reaction. This responds better to a corticosteroid such as prednisone rather than an antihistamine such as Benadryl. While it's possible, ticks don't usually cause this kind of reaction. Keep me posted, please.
