Thank you for contacting Healthcare magic.
The chances of any severe injury resulting form Q-tip is unlikely, so, there is no need to worry at present.
Bleeding should stop soon.
Pain may be there for some time. If necessary, she may take analgesics such as ibuprofen.
If hearing is normal, there is no need to rush to the doctor. However, if there is a problem in hearing, she may be taken to the ENT doc.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you have more queries.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
