then blood came out what,what should i do?
You should never, ever put cotton swabs (q-tips) into your ear and especially not a childs ear canal!!! You can puncture the eardrum. You need to take him to the Dr or ER right away. Cotton swabs are not meant to go into the ear canal. They can damage the ear and they do no good to put them in there because they actually shove dirt and debris further into the ear rather than cleaning it out. You should never put ANYTHING directly into the ear canal! Leave that up to his pediatrician, who has special instruments to clean the ear canal if it needs it. The ear is "self cleaning" Earwax is essential to this self cleaning process and it helps to protect and waterproof the ear canal. You should use a moistened wash cloth to clean the outer ear areas only and dry the outer ear with a soft towel. Never into the ear canal.
I have some friends who Dad was cleaning son's ears with a q-tip. The little boy moved, eardrum was ruptured. Instant, severe vomiting and diziness. He was admitted to hospital-Dr.s said he may be unable to walk and live a regular life. Thank God, he did recover. Such a scare for them-it seemed he wouldn't have a normal life! Don't mean to scare you, this was a sudden violent onset. They do make q-tips now that can't enter too deeply into the ear canal. good luck.
