    What are the symptoms of cauliflower ear? If there's any swelling on the outer ear...does that mean I should have it checked and drained out?

    So the swelling I have should just subside? I can't even lie down comfortably on this ear. I had a friend feel my ears and she did feel the difference.

    I may have it drained either way.

    Heres what mine looked like when it was swelled up. I had it drained since my ear hole was closed up completely. But if its minor, the swelling will go down and the fluid inside will harden up and any discomfort should go away.

    Mine isn't that bad at all....but after feeling my ear today, I did find a few soft pockets. I may have a cousin who is a nurse drain the blood out with an insulin needle.

    I don't want the blood to harden up at all, because that's what will deform the ear in time.

    I had a Judo friend that had his hole covered up like that except a lot worse. He couldn't hear out of it, he was hiding it too until I was talking to him on that side and he didn't notice I was talking to him and then he finally gave in and told me that he couldn't hear and was embarrassed about it. I told him to get that shit drained :rofl:

    fuck I'm glad I'm not someone who gets it easy. I only have a tiny spot and it's actually gotten smaller.

    drain that shit! It fucking hurts too but it gets real tender if you ignore it. You'll actually feel the weight shifting from simple head movements. lol

    Im pretty good about it too the only time I ever get it is when I used to roll with this one kid in a bjj class I used to take. He swore to fucking god that the damned bjj class was an mma class. Im rolling with him all casually and would tap and he would pull a sobral on my ass. It got so bad at one point that we were letting each other work lock flows and he was practicing the basic kimora guilitine hip heist sweep thing and when he got me in the guilitine he wouldnt let go and then I tapped and he wouldnt let go.

    I managed to get out of it but the compination of the gi the choke and fat ass streghnth owned. me, we later found out the kid was like bi polar or had some shit and he got kicked out the school because he didnt tell any one and he didnt take his meds.
