Hi everyone. I don't think this is a major concern, but I would like to hear your feedback just in case.
Every morning when I get out of the shower, I clean my ears with q-tips. I'm always very careful about how I clean my ears so as to not cause any damage. Well this morning there was a little blood on the q-tip from my right ear. I have never experienced this before, and I know that I did not insert the q-tip too deeply.
However, I am prone to seasonal allergies and sinus infections. In the past week I've had the usual stuffiness, congestion, itchy eyes, and nasal drainage. Also, when I woke up this morning my throat was sore, and there's a lot of pressure around my right ear. I'm assuming this is related to the blood I found. It's been a few hours since this occurred, and my symptoms have not lessened; although there has not been anymore blood. So far, I have not had the typical yellowish/green mucus that comes with a sinus infection.
In all my years of sinus problems, I've never had blood come out of my ear, so I don't know if this is something I need to worry about. Any advise is greatly appreciate. Thanks in advance!
