Hi. I clean my ears with q tips often and today I noticed blood on the q tip
JA: In general, how has your health been lately?
Customer: Should I be concerned?
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not at all

Hello. My name is***** and I just read through your question.

This is actually quite common with the qtips. It's likely the end of the tip just ran over a sensitive area os the ear. this typically heals very quickly and is not a cause for concern. As long as you are otherwise ok, no need to worry.
