When redness of the auricle is present, the main differential diagnoses are erysipelas, Ramsay-Hunt syndrome, relapsing polychondritis, and chilblain lupus. The pathogenesis of red ears can be inferred by careful anatomical observation. Making the correct diagnosis is important because the treatment and prognosis vary according to the cause.
