I am an ENT specialist and can help you with this
did you have discharge from your ear before you were syringed?
why was the syringing done?

no discharge before syringing which was done to remove ear wax
well it appears that there was some injury during the syringing
this is probably not from the ear drum itself and most likely from the canal
but another possibility is that you had a pre-existing perforation which is now causing the bleeding
in either case, betnesol is quite safe
though the directions may say that it is not to be used in perforated ear, yet in practise we regularly use steroid drops for perforations in the ear
but i would have preferred a antibiotic-steroid combination rather than plain steroid
ask your doctor about this - whether an antibiotic-steroid combination would not be more useful
since it is painful and discharge is pinkish which means blood stained
you should also discuss with the doctor who did the syringing
since the canal is swollen, this is most likely an injury of the ear canal
do you have any further questions?
