QUESTION & ANSWER
Why is my ear bleeding?
Bleeding from the ear is ear drainage that contains blood and may include pus, wax and fluid. The most common ear bleeding cause is a perforated eardrum or ruptured eardrum. This happens when the delicate eardrum, or tympanic membrane, has a tear or hole.
When your eardrum is ruptured you may experience a loss of hearing. You are also at risk of developing an ear infection. You should contact your doctor any time you experience bleeding from the ear. If you experience bloody discharge from the ear after a fall or a blow to the head, seek immediate medical care.
