Brief Answer: Yes you should seek urgent medical attention. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing your query. After reading your post, I would advise that you should seek urgent medical attention and get a CT scan done. There can be a possibility of fracture in skull resulting in bleeding from nose and ears after head injury. Also get her clinically examined by a Neurophysician and an ENT surgeon. I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help. Regards. Thanks.
