Painful Bump in Ear

I am a 20 year old female with a painful bump in my ear located near the ear canal.  I have had it for three months.  I went to the doctor after two months and was told it was probably an ulcer.  The doctor prescribed two weeks of antibiotics and said that it should clear it up.  It hasn't phased it and it continues to grow.  The bump is hard and bleeds from time to time.  How do I get rid of it?  Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

Hi,
You need to see an ENT or skin specialist. It must be infected and non healing, a clinical evaluation is required before any medication  is prescribed. You might be given medication for topical use too. Goodluck.
