I had a cotton bud shoved in my ear on saturday night, and it has been bleeding since then, and i wasn’t sure if it should have healed already by now
JA: How long have you been dealing with the ear issue? Have you had any colds or flus recently?
Customer: no colds or flus, it’s been 4 days since the injury
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: i don’t think so
Hi. Dr Hayat here.  Welcome to JA

Is the bud dislodged inside ?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
no, it was pulled out immediately and there’s nothing left inside
Has it been seen by some one yet?
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
no, i didn’t think it was that bad, i’m just a little worried as it is still bleeding sometimes
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
there isn’t much pain, it just feels like it needs to pop (pressure)

Ok. It needs to be seen with an otoscope just to see the exact site of the bleed where it is coming from.

You will either have to book with the GP or go to a walk in center..

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
okay thank you so much, i had a feeling i would need to go see my gp
