  • 1. Tea tree oil

    Tea tree oil is a well-known ingredient when it comes to treating pimples. It possesses anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat pimples and also reduce the swelling [1].

    • Dilute 1 tsp of tea tree oil with 9 tsps of water and mix well.
    • With the help of a cotton ball apply this mixture on the pimple.

Pimples are the unsightly annoying bumps that many people fear of having because they cause pain, irritation and often leave a mark on the skin. Pimples usually develop on the face, back and chest, but sometimes they do appear inside the ear. When the pimples form in the ear, they may or may not contain pus.

But why do pimples appear in the ear? The most common cause is excess secretion of oil from the oil glands and the other causes are infection due to ear piercings, poor hygiene, increased stress levels, allergic reaction to hair products and so on.

Fortunately, there are many natural remedies to get rid of pimples from the ear and relieve you from the pain.
