What are the causes of bleeding from the ear?

In this video, Dr. Nishi Gupta, Head department of ENT, Dr. Shroffs Charity Eye Hospital, Delhi, will explain the causes of bleeding. Bleeding from the ear when seen in children has multiple factors. The acute suppurative otitis media is the main cause of bleeding. In case of severe infection, then bleeding occurs along with pus discharge. This infection is curable with help of antibiotics. Dr. Nishi explains that in adults, the cause of bleeding is due to the trauma. They clean their ear and damage the sensitive area of external auditory canal.
