So here’s another daily do from your local dermatologist!

So if you wrestle and if you get enough damage or trauma to the cartilage of your ear, you can get this thing that some people call cauliflower ear, and we’ve all seen it in people. It looks like it’s kind of raised up where the cartilage is, so on say that the cartilage being flat it’s kind of puffy and raised and most wrestlers and most wrestling coaches know the signs of this when it’s happening from tenderness to irritation, to redness and all that sort of thing, and if you start noticing that please go see your local Dermatologist or primary care physician because sometimes we can put a little splint on it. Sometimes we can kind of put pressure to kind of keep that cartilage from, if you will separating, and causing permanent damage. If you can get to a physician sooner rather than later, oftentimes we can fix that deformity before it is permanent.

Because Dermatologists treat more than just skin cancer!
