Bleeding ear (perforated ear drum) Melissa + 2 :) 2 kids; Traverse City, Michigan 3069 posts26th Mar
My daughter had blood coming out of her ear today. Took her to the pedi and they sent us to ER to get a better look. Her ear drum is perforated and bleeding. They said it should stop later tonight and gave us antibiotic drops. We do believe she stuck something in there and just won't tell us. Nothing is stuck in there but I just want the blood to stop! We are seeing an ENT specialist on Thursday. Anyone else have this?

My son did this he was jumping on bed with a q tip and did a hole in his ear drum. Went to dr and ent to make sure no damage was done in the hearing. My dr said most cases it would heal on its own so I want to say it was a year I don't remember exactly we had to use this wax and put in his ear and form it around his ear so no water could get in. We went back and it healed closed on its own and didn't lose any hearing from it. Some cases if it doesn't heal on own I was told he would have to have surgery where they would put this "paper" stuff to seal the hole.

I'm glad he is okay! My daughter goes to see the ENT specialist tomorrow. The bleeding has stopped and she still has no pain associated with it.
