last night i jumped onto a couch and hit my head on the ledge behind it. this morning my ear still hurts really bad like if i touch it it will hurt a lot! its probably not possible to break cause its cartilage, but is there something i should be doing to help whatever i did to it heal? it feels the same but in a bigger area as when i pierced my cartilage.
You can certainly break your ear drum and possibly the bones in your inner ear with a severe puncture wound, but just a blunt trauma to the outer ear..,no, as you said, this is pretty much just cartilage. It will probably be sore for a few days and then heal on its own.
