    Are some people just more susceptible to it than others, or what?

    I've never worn headgear, and only once has my ear started swelling.

    I get my ears folding and smashed all the time while wrestling, but they never seem to swell up or get sensitive.

    i got it once blocking a hook too.

    i think some people are just more prone to it. It started to happen to me more consistently a few months ago and now it starts again whenever i don't wear head gear. the head gear is annoying too, but you get used to it.

    Sorry my camera phone sucks, i can try to take another. Im not trying to brag or anything (OMG look at how tough I am), it just shocked me at how much and quickly it swelled up. It feels like my ear hole is going to close...

    I'm very prone to cuts inside my ear! id say once or twice a month ill be a bloody mess with blood spurting out of my ear. Its not from the ear drum though, cause that would mean i need to find a doctor. However i just get lots of cuts in them for some reason, especially when people bring my gi up around my ears. anyone else have this problem?

    Some people will get it, some don't. One of my coaches has being doing jiu jitsu/MMA for well over a decade and his ears are normal. Then we've got whitebelts who are fully caulied. It's just how it goes. Drain them if they're too big, otherwise, you're kinda already screwed.

    I don't think I'm prone, never had it.

    I wouldn't mind it, I'm part of the crew that thinks its a badge of honor.

    My GF threatened to break up with me if I get it though. :mamoru:
