I have a cartilage build up bump on the outer edge of my ear where a piercing used to be. It is not infected, it is just a big bump where my skin and cartilage has tried to grow over my piercing when I had it in. The piercing is now out of my ear. I have been rubbing Jojobas oil on it for two weeks and nothing. Can I numb it up with ice and cut it off? Will that cause a bad reaction with the rest of my ear cartilage? I have some salicylic acid/aquaphilic ointment, can I use that to "kill' the bump? what should I do? I want my ear to look normal again.
