Is blood removed from ears during coning or candling?

In brief: Red ear wax

Coning and candling should not cause the ears to bleed, but earwax can sometimes be reddish-brown in color and look similar to dried blood.
If you are seeing liquid bright red blood, this isn't normal (and probably unrelated to coning/candling, if done properly) and should be checked by a doctor.
