Sections of my ears are filled with cauliflower. This isn't from fight, but from rubbing. When I was little, my favorite things to do were to play with my ears and suck my thumb. When I got older I still played with my ears. Constantly. The number of bumps increased from one to two in High School. In College I ruined my only good ear. Now it looks like a curly, disfigured, protruding, mismatched abomination. The truth is that every time I try to stop, I continue to do it subconciously. Sometimes they burn and the only way to make it stop is by rubbing them. The doctors never drained them when I needed them too, and they are now permanent. By the time I was in college I knew what was wrong with my ear. I went to the doctor's immediately and he said they looked normal, but after a month the small bumps grew into huge permanent scars. It will take $3000 to fix my ears. I feel ugly and grotesque. It just eats away at my self-esteem all day.
