Ear infection, sports injury to ear, increased pressure, bleeding, soft wax discharge. Treatment?

HI, I had an ear infection last week, I used some drops in it and seemed to be getting better. I played football yesterday and headed the ball, however it hit that ear. I think it covered the whole ear and caused a vaccuum which then increased the pressure in my ear very quickly. It now hurts a lot and is bleeding . The wax is very gooey and soft and mixed with the blood . Is this serious?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

I would suggest you to consult your doctor at the earliest. The probability of rupture of the ear drum can not be ruled out. If there is a perforation of the eardrum the treatment required is cleaning the canal and keeping it dry and out of infection.
