Other Chronic External Ear Disorders 43 Summary Mycotic otitis externa, synonymous with chronic diffuse otitis externa, is characterized by milder pain than the acute infections. Patients complain of chronic moisture, blockage, thick drainage, itching, and mild discomfort. A characteristic finding is the presence of thick matter in the canal, without severe swelling or tenderness.
If they are infected, the treatment is an antistaphylococcal antibiotic. Often the infection will resolve, but incision and drainage may be necessary. Troublesome recurrences can be surgically excised, when not infected, taking care to remove the entire cyst lining. Even then, they may reappear. Epidermal cysts of the lobule can occur within the epithelialized tract of an ear-piercing site. They present with swelling, weeping, and repeated infection. If conservative treatment with antibiotics and cleansing fails, surgical excision, with removal of the entire epithelialized lining, may be necessary.
