Bleeding Ear After Cleaning
After using a q~tip to clean my ear, i woke up the next day with my ear bleeding and plugged. Same as when water is in ear. How do I unplug ear?
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 more
My 9year old daughter was cleaning ears with qtip and seen a decent amount of blood.The bleeding stoped shortly after she has no pain or hearing loss?
R/O OTITIS V TRAUMA: Q tips can often cause more harm and trauma to the ears either by scraping the canal or blocking the cerumen. She needs a through exam to differentiate and potentially antibiotic therapy. She should be seen ASAP, especially if fever develops ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 more
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 doesn't balance?
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 more

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 more
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 more
