Red Hot Ears
My daugther (age 10) gets red hot ears on several occasions. I can't really track it down to somethings that she eats and her moods differ each time.

Most of the times she hasn't been physically active before such an occurance.

What could this be?

Thank you for visiting

I recommend that you consult your GP to exclude a skin condition that can affect the ears and cause it to be red and hot. Most of the time it is idiopathic and said to connected to exposure to cold conditions.

Kind regards
