That's right! I have a ho' page! Now.....where's my bitches at?!!?
Here's the info about cauli ear from my site;
Cauliflour ear is medically called a "hematoma". A blood vessel between the cartlidge in your ear has broken. The blood has flooded the surrounding tissue and cavaties causing the swelling. This can occur especially when you are trying to pass the guard and the guy is pushing against your head to prevent your from taking the cross-mount.
Good ear protection can prevent cauliflour ear, BUT bad ear protection can make it even worse! Ear protection can be purchased at any sporting goods store, or highschool/college wrestling catalogue. When looking for headgear there are some things to keep in mind. You want to get a SOFT chin strap. If it is not soft or at least padded it will cut into your neck while training. You also want the ear cups to be ventilated, meaning that there are holes on the ears cups because it gets very hot in the headgear without them. And the last and most important thing is to make sure the headgear does not slip off your head. When headgear slips off of your head this can make existing cauliflour worse, or start new cauliflour ear!
If you want to get rid of the swelling and pressure in your ear, then you have to get it drained by a doctor. The procedure is quite simple. The doctor wipes alcohol on your ear. he then takes a needle and sticks it into your ear lobe near the area of the swelling. He then uses the needle to suck out the blood, water, and other fluid inside the cavity. The needle may be inserted in the front of the ear OR even the back of the ear. And yes it does hurt! It feels like a very strong pinch with somewhat of a tickling sensation as its being drained. The amount of fluid that is drawn from the ear varies, but typically its 1cc to 3cc's.
If you do not get your ear drained within 4-7 days of the incident, the swollen area of your ear will begin to harden. Once the swollen tissue has hardened getting it drained will not help. The swelling in your ear WILL decrease slightly without getting it drained but not completly. After the tissue has hardened the only way to get the ear back to normal appearance is through cosmetic surgery. This procedure involves slicing the ear and "scraping" and "cutting" the tissue on the inside of the ear lobes.
Should I try to pop my ear with a pin or knife to drain it?
This is not recommended. I know people who have done this, but you are actually at greater risk of hitting another blood vessel in your ear and making your cauliflour ear worse! Besides, even if you are successful at breaking the skin you will not be able to get all of the blood out of the cavity yourself without a needle. Your best bet is to go to a doctor.
What happens if I have cauliflour ear and do nothing about it?
The biggest problem with cauliflour ear is if the cavity opens up into your ear canal. If that happens your hearing can be impaired. This type of cauliflour ear is difficult to remove and may involve minor surgery to prevent it from coming back. In addition to this, our ear will harden and be deformed. You will look similar to some of the competitors in the NHB competitions.

Be careful about using bleach on ringworm. If you leave the bleach on too long you will get a chemical burn. I used bleach a couple of times along with an anti-fungal and it worked well, but one of my students left the bleach on for a very long time and he was bleeding and in extreme pain!
I asked him why he didn't wash the bleach off when it started to hurt, and he just shrugged.
In a snide sort of way I suppose I was.....
Actually, I had never given thought to contracting ring worm on one's noggin, as this condition usually seems to occur in the more southerly regions of one's anatomy, but after viewing the photo section of your Ho-page, I can now see how that's possible.
