What are symptoms of ear injury after using Q tip?

I was cleaning my 2 year olds ear after bath with a q tip when she moved her head and the qtip went in too far. She started crying and said her ear hurt but there was no blood at that time. The next day I noticed dried blood in that ear. Should I take her to the doctor?

Hi,
It seems that there might be having some minor injury or bruise in external ear giving rise some blood spots.
now if there is no pain or discomfort, nothing to worry, gradually it will be healed up.
Meanwhile put some antibiotic ear drops 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days.
Do not try to remove blood clot from ear.
Ok and take care.
