Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
You should get this investigated ASAP.
I would like that you should go to the ER.
Blood from the ear may indicate a fracture in the skull which requires it to be investigated in the ER.
Let me know if you have more questions.
I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the smilies below.
Kind regards
