Customer Question
I have been having...

I have been having lots of fluid discharge from my ear for the last several weeks. I went to Urgent Care 3 days ago and was diagnosed with a possible ear infection, I was prescribed medicated drops and an antibiotic about an hour ago my ear started draining blood. Should I go to emergency. I do not have pain--but I do have ringing in the ear.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you experiencing any dizziness? Do you have a fever?

No dizziness. no fever

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have a T Tube in my ear--it's been in for 12 years. Before that I had two smaller tubes that eventually fell out. My left eustacian tube is the size of a 5 year old child.

Depends on the type of blood that is discharging. If it is fresh red blood then yes, you need to go to the ER. Fresh red blood is bright red and usually appears as blood clots and is in large quantities. If this is dried or dark colored old blood and is just an ooze and scanty in amount or admixed with pus or straw-colored fluid, then this is something normally seen in otitis media (middle ear infections).

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.
