    Default Red bump on ear - hives?

    Hi all,
    I noticed this red lump on Charlei's ear 2 days ago. It almost resembles a pimple, but has gotten slightly bigger over the last couple days. She has been suffering from hives recently (whole other issue I'm working on) but this doesn't look like a hive to me.
    Anyone ever seen anything like this or have any ideas of what I should do?
    (Sorry the pics are sideways- haven't figured they out yet)

    Sort of looks like a Histiocytoma (benign skin tumor). It usually pops up quickly and takes a few months before it falls off - it definitely doesn't look like a hive though.

    Bella would get those… I would just keep it clean, and keep an eye on it. It should go away on it's own...

    I just took a closer look with my computer and it really does look like a Histiocytoma. I've had two experiences with this with 2 separate dogs. My Boston mix had one on her side. it kept getting scrapped and bleeding while she played. It took about 4 months to go away completely. My Frenchton just developed one in January on his paw and it slowly went away by March. It too ended up bleeding a bit but then it went away. Best advice as Tracey said is to keep it clean

    If Charlei's changes shape, doesn't stay round or keeps growing you may want to see the vet. Sully's got as big as a small gum-ball before it went away. here is a pic of what he had on his paw. it looks exactly the same.
