Doctor: 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! ...Read moreGet help now ›
Using a Q-tip to : 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. ...Read moreGet help now ›
I need help or advice on what to do I have bleeding in my ear.Accidently poked myself while cleaning?
Pressure.: 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. ...Read moreGet help now ›

I cleaned my husbands ear with peroxide and a cotton swab. Then his ear started bleeding. It has stopped but there is a cut and is clogged?
Never use Q-tips: As you probably know, Q-tips are not supposed to be used in the ear canal for the very reason you noted. You can accidentally cause a canal abrasion which bleeds. Now, you should go to an otolaryngologist to carefully examine and clean the ear. There are many OTC remedies to dissolve ear wax safely rather than using Q-tips. Please look into that area in the future. ...Read moreGet help now ›
Not uncommon: 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. ...Read moreGet help now ›
