Red warm ears

I know this is probably a stupid question, but my ears are sometimes red and really warm. Sometimes its both, other times just one. Is there a specific reason for this? Why does it happen?

Dear Hot ears

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

Your ears are sometimes red and warm, due to vaso dilutation of the arteries (blood vessels) in your ears. This, is however, nothing to be concerned about.

Kind regards
