My daughter has not lived with us for about 4 years. I hadn't seen her ears for quite some time. She always has her hair covering them. I didn't know why until this past weekend when I saw them. I was horrified. They are red, thickening, scaly and deforming. She has had a cholesteatoma when she was younger and has gotten swimmers ear numerous times. I was wondering if this could be fungal or is there something else wrong. Please help.
