Ear pain

I realise this is not the most exciting topic to broach, so apologies if it's not your cup of tea! However, I guess I should detail all aspects of my life, from the interesting to the mundane!

Now for an exciting picture of an ear to help me explain my tale of woe:

Basically, I've developed a sort of pressure sore on the helix and antihelix of my ear (see picture). It's been there a while, as due to my scoliosis, I can only lie on one side to sleep, as I have nightmares/sleep paralysis attacks if I sleep on my back (sounds weird, but apparently it's not mega uncommon). However, I think something must have exacerbated it as it's suddenly really painful - I had no idea how painful a tiny sore could be! I have had it before, but I can't remember how I treated I put cream on it? Do I keep it dry? Do I try and find a dressing for it? I've seen these ear pillows, like a donut with a hole in for the ear, but I don't know anyone crafty enough to make me one, and they don't seem to be sold anywhere.

If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated!

  1. oh catherine is your ear any better now? do you still need help? if you tell me about the ear pillow i might be able to make you one! thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog - i definitely bottle feelings up too but I find it really helps to write them down somehow. If you don't feel comfortable writing too much yet you can maybe do a guest blog on mine in a few weeks? explaining about your struggles?
    also do you have email/fb? would be nice to be able to chat more :-) x
