2 year old with bleeding from ear. Grommets inserted in the ear. On antibiotics for ear infection. No pain

My 2 yo daughter had grommets inserted last November. Last week I noticed her ear was weeping and took her to the doctor. The doctor sais there was no infection but had water in there. I noticed my daughters ear was bleeding from the inside yesterday afternoon. I took her to the emergency dep. at the hospital and doctor diagnosed her with her with an ear infection and put her on antibiotics . This morning, the ear was still bleeding and more than what it was lastnight. She doesn t seem to be in any pain. Could an infection cause bleeding?

What did the doctor say about the present situation of the grommet? if the grommet is still intact then some amount of weeping is normal. If there is bleeding then in all probability, the grommet would have extruded out due to the infection. During the extrusion some amount of bleeding is expected which should settle with minimum treatment in a day or two. if the bleeding persists consult the ENT again.
And to answer you final question, yes, an infection can definitely cause bleeding.
