Re: bloody buds.
Dreems, Welcome! It just so happens that i took my bff to a dr because her ears had pressure, muffled hearing that all started with itchy ears & she used qtips inside ear canal to scratch with. The dr said that she began with fluid behind her eardrum& itching from allergies & inside ear canal our ears lay down a coating of wax that acts as an antiseptic that prevents germ growth & when disturbed by a qtip then bacteria can grow & the bleeding is because the wax is adhered strongly to ear canal lining & qtips can tear the lining easily if wax moved, then germs then an outer ear infection. She had antibiotics, ear drops for 10 days. While it was healing it itched, she used qtips again & the same process happened again. When my mom said nothing smaller than your elbow in the ear, she was evidently right! Also, we found qtips that are puffed out bigger so they wont fit in ear opening but can dry water & clean outer ear that you can see.
