ENT Specialist 's  Response

It is highly inadvisable for you to clean the ear yourself. It might shock u to know that the ear doesnt really need any cleaning. If at all there is lot of wax it has to be removed by a ENT specialist and not by you at home. Using a Q tip pushes the wax further and makes the situation worst. For the current problem I would ask you to not let water enter into your ear, dont further clean your ear. Keep it dry. It should heal by itself. Give it a day's time if the bleeding doesnt stop its better you visit the nearest ENT.

I hope you found my response to be helpful and informative. If you have any additional concerns I would be happy to address them.
