Fluid sensation in ears, bleeding from left ear canal, occurred after cleaning ear with q-tip. Cure?

I was cleaning my ears the morning with a q-tip, and went in too far on the left side. I felt immediate pain so I removed the q-tip right away. About an hour later it felt like there was water in my ear and when I stuck my finger in to get it out I saw blood . It has continued to bleed a slow drip in my left ear canal ever since

HI I have gone through your mail and as you said you got blood in your ear canal after trauma to ear canal during ear cleaning with a q-tip, during cleaning you feel severe pain and you remove the q-tip straight away. after listening your this story it is clear that this bleeding is due to injury in ear here you have not told about hearing status in affected ear so I am supposing that your hearing is O.K. if no change in hearing indicate that your ear drum is not perforated but if you are feeling heaviness,fullness or numbness in ear mean ear drum is affected.It will be better to consult your E.N.T.specialist for ear examination and treatment.Till you are not getting contact with specialist you may take any broad spectrum antibiotic orally never use any ear drop.Thanks.
