My daughter had large piece of wax in ear & I used a qtip to get it although she mover & ear started to bleed. It stopped quick, but am worried?

My daughter had large piece of wax in ear & I used a qtip to get it although she mover & ear started to bleed. It stopped quick, but am worried?

Likely a scratch: The walls of the ear canal are thin, and bleed easily with trauma. You likely scratched the wall on the side. We encourage parents to avoid putting Q tips in the ear for this and other reasons. The wax is made in the outer half of the canal and will fall out over time. Q-tips can push it back and plug the whole ear. Your doc can verify the scratch or be sure you didn't hurt the ear drum. ...Read more
