Hello I'm Dr Chip

Any ear pain or have you by chance been trying to clean out your ear canal?

Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

How's your hearing in that ear?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
i was not trying to clean my ear.. but i did feel dried skin in my ear, and that's how i found dried blood in my ear
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

And how's the hearing in that ear?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
my hearing is normal, i don't think there is any partial hearing or so
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 10 months ago

OK

The one thing that might be concerning that could cause blood in the canal would be a perforated ear drum but it doesn't sound like that's the case here/

You might have some eczema of the canal causing the dry skin there and that can bleed sometimes

But nothing at all serious here

That said, since I can't examine you you should have your doctor take a look in your ear

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
