I was cleaning my ear and managed to bump a Q-Tip down my ear, maybe half way. I was relieved to see no blood, but it was painful, very much so, then my throat started to hurt a lot too. After say 30 mins it got to a point where I could sit down and bear it enough. 2 Days later I see that my ear was and is in fact bleeding, and I cannot hear as well in the ear. We are waiting a while and will be putting a drop of Olive Oil in it, since that is supposed to help, I hear. Anything I should know based on this? I am trying to resist yanking dry blood out my ear, it seems to make it run more since once in a while I put my finger to check and there is a bit of wet blood sometimes. Oh and what about my hearing, would it return to normal?
