OMG Really? I had them as a kid and my mom would jam her fingernails in there EEEK!!! It hurt sooo bad I've 'seen' them in many ppl tho - Not that I go around looking in ears... But really they are quite common.

Ears are full of sebaceous glands, too. Most people don't bother looking in the ears and therefore miss the blackheads there. Take a look at your own ears with a light and a hand-held mirror held so that you can see inside the ears when looking in the mirror in front of you; you might be surprised.

I'm glad they're going away! Just do be careful when poking around in the ear (it's safer to use a properly sterilized comedone extractor and not put it into the ear canal at all).

I agree -- I used to use the extractor *(well my mom did if for me when i was younger)* and it was a constant fret that it'd slip -- ACK!!!
Also KerryLee - I can relate to the cysts in/around the ears, I am costantly getting them behind my ears EEEW!! I even had one lanced once directly on that lil flappy-majigger on the ear...
Why oh why must we go thru this crap-ola!!
