The cause of bleeding itself was not something of a big concern. I somehow scratched the ear canal wall with a cotton swab. However, it took the whole night of sleep for the bleeding to stop and my ear canal is filled with dried blood. Now that the bleeding has stopped, I am trying to get the dry blood cleaned up. It is obvious that the blood has reached so deep in the ear that I can feel there is something in my ear and I hear echo sound. However, I can not seem to get any more of it out using cotton swab and saline. Shall I go see a doctor for this or if the ear has some self cleaning mechanism that will eventually push the dried blood out, like the ear wax? Anybody had similar experience and mind to share? Thanks.
