Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Most common reason for bleeding from the ear is due to trauma. There is nothing that you need to worry about as this is extremely common. Make sure you do not use earbuds as they often traumatize the ear canal or eardrum and introduce infections. Please do not use headphones or earphones as well, until it heals. Make sure you keep the ear dry, make sure no water enters the ear at any cost.

For now you can apply Ciplox (Ciprofloxacin) ear drops three drops thrice a day and take tablet LCZ (Levocetirizine) 10 mg one tablet at night after meals for the next one week (this will reduce any itching). Make sure that there is no pus like discharge from the ear because in such a situation, the infection of the eardrum is more likely and will require systemic oral antibiotics.

I hope this helps.
