Suggest remedy for ear ailment

i woke up this morning with a sensation similiar to water in my ear. My hearing is a bit muffled and I noticed some blood in my ear when I put my pinky finger in the ear. Went to urgent care and he did not think it was ruptured ear drum. Any thoughts.

Hello
It is likely that your external ear canal is swollen, possibly due to an injury. This may have also caused the bleeding. Please dont worry, just do not probe the ear again and keep the ear dry, it will heal on its own.

Take care
