hello would you like to chat on this?
I am an ENT specialist and can help you on this
do you see my message?
wax in the initial stages can often be treated at home
but not when he is having bleeding
since he is having bleeding, you have to go to the ER i am afraid
We have tried the ear candles and he kinda of has a history of ear plug problems
the bleeding suggests he has had an injury and needs to be examined for this
injury to the canal of the ear can lead to infection which can be very painful
well he thinks it was from scab its not bad bleeding
hence he should be examined as soon as possible in the ER
thats right, its probably some scab which has become dislodged
do u think thats what is causing the cold as well
but this itself requires an ER visit
i thank u very much
glad to help
going to the ER is the only option for him now with this bleeding
otherwise there can only be more complications leading to more expenses in the future

he argues that we cant afford it is there anything we can do at home?
will they pull the plug at the ER when we go in??
yes thats right
they can remove the plug
but the main thing is that they can examine the cause of the bleeding
and if there is active sore, they can even prescribe antibiotics if needed
for home treatment, you can use hydrogen peroxide solution
it has to be diluted adequately for this
use hydrogen gurgle and dilute it one is to three
with water, yes
dilute one is to three or two
you can try this if at all you do not want to go to the ER
but best option is to go to the ER
but try this first if you should wish to
force flush it just drain it in slowly
drain it slowly
that can often help
but if there is any increase of pain, etc you need to go to the ER
no pain just cant hear from it
ok you can try this for now
