    cauliflowered ears, aint that a b****?

    so my left ear is a freakin baloon now, thanks to those noobs that hold on to that headlock for dear life (even if it means totally giving up position and and getting side-controlled.)

    I guess my ears have had it and my the little bubble has been growing larger and larger every time I grapple full-blast.

    I have been sticking in some needles in there and draining it manually,and now its just bruised up and puffy, the first day i thought it was kinda cool, now its just annoying the crap outta me.

    bought myself some earguards last week, that should help it out, but what to do about the lump that is already there?

    I have heard crap from...
    -draining it (which has worked to an extent)
    -icing it
    -putting a piece of tape around it
    -going to sleep sitting up untill gravity drains it down
    -go to the damn doctor you fool.

    anything else I can do to stop this crap? its just getting bigger and bigger at an incredible rate.

    the girlfriend won't like this one bit. :besos:

    Dude, how long have you been having that bubble?????

    If you already drained, then it's just puffy because the carthilage got loose. I've seen that they tape it (don't know how they do it) so that the carthilage gets together they way is supposed to be (and get enough blood to heal.) If the carthilage remains loose, it will die and your ear will deform.

    Just go see a doctor... just in case.:beatdead:

        Dude? you can't be serious...are you? You have BJJ in your field, meaning you roll frequently with resistance, and you honestly did not know that cauliflower ears can result from grappling?

          it hurts like shit, I had a bubble that hardened, and other chambers are growing around it, I only take out the new ones, but I think I must have hit the first chamber while poking around, becuase now I have a dark purple bruise in the center of the warp, and it is very sore!

            I was coasting for the last year and a half. Things changed about two weeks ago however. The center of my right ear has been constantly sore and hard (although not very swollen), but it lacks any clear 'bubble'. I figure I'm fucked, but I"m not touching it.

              You should be proud and wear that fuckin thing like the badge of honor that it is.

              Translation:

              Tu debe ser orgulloso y usa esa cosa del pinche como la divisa del honor que es.

                See a sports doctor before you end up like Big Nog. It might be a badge of honor amongst grappler who know what it is, but normal people just end up thinking "wtf is that?!"

                  If you think its a badge of honour your just a dumb fuckwit who is bringing LARPing to MMA. "Ohh now everyone will know I do teh [email protected] and think Im d32dly!"

                  Go to a doctor, stop poking at it, your gonna get infected and be deformed if you do, and stop rolling for a week or two. I know its horrible but maybe during those two weeks you can weight lift or do lots of cardio or work on hitting things.

                  Also, after your done healing, wear quality ear gaurds.

                  Now be a good little guy and do it.

                    Don't they have special ear guards for that sort of thing?

                      This is a joke, right? Either see a doctor or leave it alone and let it heal.

                          I would avoid repeatedly poking holes in your ear to drain it, especially if you are still training, you might end up with a nasty infection. Rolling around on the mat with sweaty mfers is a great way to expose a cut to some bacteria.

                          I know a guy who wrestled for about 20 years, he said you can drain it with a hypodermic (get a friend who's an MD or RN to do it), then you want to put a dressing on it to keep pressure, so that it doesn't refill with liquid. If you don't put a pressure dressing on after draining, it will probably just swell back up. And make sure you clean it well before and after draining w/ alcohol or something.

                            another question to ask is "Why are you forcefully pulling your head out of a noob's headlock?"

                              My ex boy friend was a wrestler and currently a mixed martial art fighter he had a nasty case of cauliflower ears. They annoyed him so much that he ended up having surgery don't know if you are that bad but if they bother you enough there's always surgery.:eusa_clap
