Hello there. This is dr kayfarooq attending you. May I know if there was a trauma or any other thing? Is it fresh blood? Regards
No trauma. I poked my finger in my ear. There was something brown on it. I used a q tip and there was fresh blood inside. I did not poke the eardrum
That is relieving. Is the hearing from this ear alright?
yes, fine. no buzzing or ringing just blood
i am taking blood pressure meds. do you think my pressure went too high?
could it just be a pimple that broke in the canal?
That is even better. So there must be finger nail trauma which has caused oozing of blood. Blood pressure doesn't cause an ear bleed like this. Epistaxis has certain specific point like nose epithelium.
Yes it seems like a pimple broken by finger.
I am sure you can be relaxed about it, if it doesn't go to pain and other stuff, like pus.
no finger nail puncture
Skin inside ear is very tight, and even small pimples and injuries cause a lot of discomfort.
So if you continue to feel pain, you may take an over the counter painkiller, like paracetamol.
it's weird, no discomfort no pain
If however, it worsens, then it would merit seeing a doctor.
if the blood continues?
yes it is weird, but just take your symptoms as they are, if there is more to be noted, see a doctor, like blood, pus etc.
If there is nothing more, it means it was self limiting
ok thank you for your time i will go to doctor if blood continues into tomorrow
