the vet described the pinna as having 3-layers-- skin, cartilage and skin. Frequent head shaking results in the breaking of capillaries that may lead to oozing of fluid between the layers. When this happens, the fluid separates the skin on the underside of the pinna from the cartilage. When swelling happens the area is subject to a lot of pressure causing pain.
