Bleeding through ears, black stuff visible, painful. Emergency?

my daughter just came to me and said mom thier is blood in my year(she is 4) she showed me her finger and it had dark red blood on the tip and I looked in her ear and it is filled with black stuff. I guess blood and wax mixed. She has not been complaining of it hurting and I know it wasnt like this yesterday?? Should I got to the emergancy room tonight or just take her to the dr in the morning. She is playing and seems just fine????

HI I have gone through your mail and as you said that your 4 year old daughter complaining of blood in her ear without any pain and you saw black stuff in the ear,your this observation put me to think about associated otitis externa or there is also possibility that wax of ear may create some discomfort in ear and she had hurt her ear by her nails in itching.though it is not an emergency but one should rule out diseases leading painless ear bleeding like- Thrombocytopenia, sickle cell anaemia, thalassemia and lastly leukemia. So you should contact E.N.T.specialist and Pediatrics, for examination and to find out the real pathology.
