the other one looks normal and she has no ear pain. But she could hear ear ringing whole night last night ans could not sleep

Dear friend, the lesion in the external auditory canal represents a HIperkeratosis, in the case of its made it must be studied since this lesions can be due to an injury of the skin of the ear that is originated by multiplication of the skin in that zone some malignant lesions and tumours of the skin of the external auditory canal must be discarded, there are some conditions such as keratosis obturans and other lesions that must be ruled out and an examination of the auditory canal is necessary because there may be more internal lesions.
At this time I suggest you request a consultation with an Otolaryngologist to rule out such injuries.
For Pain you should take 200mg ibuprofen every 8 hours, do not put anything in the ear until evaluated.
