This is a keloid that has been treated with steroid injection, the latter seen in the last 3 pictures

My thought was an ochronosis of the ear complicated with a steroid injection granuloma.  But maybe the eosin stain is a bit tricky for me, so agree with Raul.

Steroid injection induced granuloma with scar formation.

Agree with Vincenzo. Collagen bundles are irregularly shaped and markedly swollen, with a brownish hue, features that favor ochronosis.

I thought of ochronosis also associated with steroid granuloma

Steroid injection granuloma. Not sure if this is genuine pigment or an artefact.

It should be "right ear lesion" in the history.  Yes, this is a keloid with steroid injection (kenalog).
