When cleaning out my ear, I forced the q-tip too deep and blood came out. There was no stream of blood, but after mostly lying on my side while sleeping, I found very small dots on my pillow (I would say the size of the tip of a pencil). There is little to no hearing loss after a full night. However, I often have to swallow to pop my ear. I did some research on my own, but I am not certain if this is damage to the bony canal membrane or to the eardrum. Do you think this is an emergency that requires a visit to the ENT or not?
