Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
Common to both of these, did you have an attack of cold in the recent days? Was there any earache before the onset of bleeding from the ear?

this is most probably an acute infection of the ear,which is called ASOM.This usually follows a cold attack.Due to accumulation of fluid behind the eardrum pt. usually get pain in the ear and headache.After some time ( few hours or days) the ear drum gets ruptured and the discharge starts coming from the ear.once the discharge starts coming , the pain and headache dramatically subsides as there will be no pressure on the ear drum now.

put a nasal drop and take antibiotics .do not allow water to enter into your ear for few days,otherwise you may get a more serious problem called CSOM.

And it caused me to have symptoms of swimmers ear or ear infection and so i cleaned out my ear it didn t hurt at first but as the day progressed it started to hurt bad. Like a earache so i put similasan ear relief in it and a cotton ball. So the next day I awoke and had broke a fever and noticed that I could hardly hear out of my right ear so i went in to the bathroom to see what wrong and then it started to hurt again so i put the ear relief in again. And a cotton ball. A few hours went by and my ear felt funny so i toke the cotton ball out and found a good amount of some what wet blood on the cotton ball. So I went another with pain and finding blood on my cotton ball and having ear pain. And headaches. Getting hot and sweaty and I feel as if my heads in the clouds. And now I have a little blood coming out but it fell as if something want to come out of my ear but nothing. I can barely hear as it is I have a lot of ear canal damage due to be a child. What do i do because I am having a hard time hearing and everything sou d mono tone to me. But my ear is still bleeding a little.

Hello, my 7 year old daughter is battling an ear ache possible ear infection for 3 days. I haven t taken her in because I ve been under the impression that s it s best to allow her to work through it with natural home remedies and save antibiotics as a last resort. she has had a fever come and go and I ve been giving her tylenol and made a garlic infused olive oil mix to use as drops in her ear several times a day. it seems to sooth and help a little but neither remedy has gotten the throbbing to go away. throbbing seems to have moved from her ear to a couple areas on her head around her ear. today is the 4th day. because she was in her jammies and laying around most of yesterday, she didn t brush her teeth. this morning i talked her into letting me because her breath was bad and I knew bacteria in the mouth wouldn t help the situation. i was shocked to find that her tongue was blackish green! some of it brushed off but not all and it seemed to be coming from the back of the tongue. is this a sign of bacteria confirming her ear or sinuses probably has a bacterial infection?

I have a constant thundering in my left ear, this has been going on for around 4 to 6 months now, tonight it is seriously freaking me out and I have tooth pain and ear pain with it which never happened before. I have a piercing on the little nub between the ear and the face I cant remember what that part is called but I lost the ball on the earring and did not find it so I am wondering if this could be caused by an object in my ear or if it could be more serious? It is like a beating or thundering in my ear, not a ringing sound. It does not go along with my own heart beat, it is irregular and cases the feeling of vibration on my face as well.
