Customer Question

Blood coming out of my right ear. It feels clogged then realized it's blood. I cleaned it using cotton buds and it's okay now. This is the second time it has happened now this month and it's concerning.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: I don't know why.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
