I was swimming and felt some water in my ear

I was swimming and felt some water in my ear i did the valsalva maneuver and that felt like it filled my ear up and it hurt so i didnt do it again, the symptoms started to go away but all of a sudden i have ear pain and a feeling of ear fullness, what is this and how can I help it? i took an antihistamine and put in some wax removing drops but my symptoms are the same.

Last night I went to bed, and within a few minutes I felt an almost flush feeling in my ear. I got up to look in the mirror and had blood running down the side of my face coming from my ear. I tried to clean it and soaked up approx. 10-15 q tips, before it seemed to be clean. Went back to bed within 5 minutes it happened again, mire blood running from ear. If I put a q tip in my ear now there is still some bood but not as much as before. I haven t had any injury, haven t been exposed to loud noise, no flights, scuba, swimming or other pressure or temp changes. Was not picking or cleaning it, and only used q tips after it started bleeding.Also no pain, although now does feel a bit like I have been swimming and got water in my ear but I haven t. Any idea what might be causing this? Thank you in advance for an help -Maggie

My 10 year old student jumped from the diving board in the water at swimming lessons this morning and is now complaining of ear pain. Otoscopy shows redness and bulging at the eardrum. It doesn t look like swimmer s ear. Heat did not help. Trying Ibuprofen.
