    Me too! Always my right ear, i'll go to shower and when i towel off my head the back of my ear will sting. It's always after wrestling\bjj and never striking. I fight out of a looooot of chokes, so I do think it's your ears being rubbed against and such from the submission attempts.

    Simple Solution: Wear an ear-guard. You'll never have that problem again.

    I have thought about this but I live in Brazil and a decent one is almost impossible to find. I might bite the bullet and order from Amazon and just pay the 10000% tax this Banana Republic charges on everything I have sent here.

    Also, I am not one to give a fuck about what others say but I already get shit for wearing a mouthpiece. Goddamn I

    Just apply a little neosporin after the shower. Heals up quick.

    I frequently get tiny cuts just where the top of my ear connects to my head.
    Only time they bother me is in the shower.

    I had this problem for a while too. It's cause the skin back there is too dry.
    Try rubbing lotion behind ur ears at night before bed. Problem should go away after about a week.

    I get cuts there too, but I've never really been bothered by them.

    Maybe someone is rubbing their sleeves on it on purpose.

    I thought I was the only one! I feel this after every training...but only during that first shower after training. I don't feel it again until the next time I train

    Hah, I went googling for this and I find this thread. Obviously I get this too -- no-gi is particularly tough on the backs of my ears. I bled quite a lot today. I wonder if it's because the skin is very delicate behind there? I seem to be cauliflower resistant so far, so I'll take this over bubble ears anyday...

    I'm a little bitch who only goes for trips and counter throws, and I always tap out right away to guillotine chokes, so my ears look as fresh as the day I was born.

    Stop fighting so hard and it will quit happening.
