Given the bleeding, you really need to have a medical professional look into the ear with the appropriate equipment. You could have a perforated ear drum, which can create the sensations you're describing. It's actually best not to put anything in your ear, as it's very easy to tear your eardrum on accident!

For the past 3 weeks my ears have been bleeding. Only when I clean them tho. And every once in a while my nose will start bleeding should I to doctor?

Ear trauma

Epiglottitis
You may be injuring the delicate skin of the ear canal when you clean them. Sometimes if there is eczema the skin itches and is more likely to bleed. Nose bleeds this time of year are usually from dryness. Certainly bleeding from minor trauma from multiple locations might indicate a coagulation disorder so if the bleeding continues then see MD.

What do you do if you were cleaning a babies ear and it started bleeding?

Using a Q-tip to

Open-uri20130116-30206-gxb9i7
clean the external ear canal pushes wax toward the eardrum. A scratch in the canal will heal; a ruptured ear drum would've been very painful. If her doctor okays it, use 2% Hydrogen Peroxide mixed 50-50 with sterile water in a sterile botle & dropper. Lay baby on her side, gently pull back the ear, instill 3-4 drops & allow 4-5 minutes in that position for it to " bubble" out the wax, not Q-tips.

What should be done when a ent cleans out someone's ears and they start bleeding?

Not uncommon

Head-ear
A small amount of bleeding might be no big deal since the ear canal is lined by thin, extremely sensitive skin. I would certainly let the doctor who did the cleaning know immediately and probably go back and allow them to take a second look to make sure there is no problem.

I need help or advice on what to do i have bleeding in my ear.Accidently poked myself while cleaning?

Pressure.

Ear
Pressure for 10 minutes (watch a clock) will stop any bleeding unless you have a blood clotting disorder. If it's too far inside the ear canal to reach, put a piece of cotton in there and see your doctor. There is a lesson to be learned here, of course -- NEVER put anything smaller than your elbow inside your ear! You're just pushing the dirt further back, and risking exactly what happened.

20 minutes ago i was cleaning my ear with a qtip and i went too far and it started to bleed I can hear fine and it stopped bleeding

You

You probably scratched the side of your ear canal. If it stopped bleeding and your hearing is fine, you don't need to worry. It is recommended that q-tips not be used to clean the ear canal. Use it to clean the outer ear but not inside. Becareful.

I started cleaning my husband's ear an went a bit far and it started bleeding little, he started having pain, can hear noises and sound doesnt balance?

He needs check

Cleaning
You may have ruptured his ear drum (tympanic membrane). It is important NEVER to use small devices, like q-tips to clean the canals, as this is a common occurrence. He needs to see an ENT Dr. Good luck

Qtips too far till bleeding Hi everyone,last night i was cleaning my ear with Q tips and by accident it went too deep till i had this sharp pain then there was bleeding ,it stooped for awhile but then when i woke up this morning there was 3 drops of blood

No Q-tips in ears

At best you scratched your ear canal. At worst you injured the eardrum. Keep water out of your ear and see ENT doctor. Never put an object in your ear please.

how do i make my ear stop bleeding?

Why is it bleeding?

Ear
The better question is why is it bleeding and for my purpose what part of your ear is bleeding? Alot more information is needed here. If blood is coming from your ear canal, cotton and antibiotic ointment can stop the flow. Regardless, you MUST see an ENT doctor.
