my dd 12, has blisters running alongt he cartlige of one ear. They are clear, fluid filled blisters. No, she doesn't have piercings. I don't want to take her to a ped because I am sure they would put her on antibiotics, strong ones at that. I did call though and they said I would have to go through the isolation "chamber" because she could be contagious???? Her ear is minor red and swollen!
Thanks any help I would appreciate!!!

This is going to sound really dumb - but did she get the top of her ear sunburnt That would cause this sort of thing.

I was going to ask that same thing. I ended up with blisters like that after working out in the sun all day one time. I'd remembered to put sunscreen everywhere else but on my ears.

Has she used a phone recently where the owner may have some type of ear fungus? A friend of mine had to be treated for a fungus on the ear from using a pay telephone after someone else had used it and must have had it.
