Good afternoon Fitriani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Before proceeding, we need to remind you not to use a cotton bud to clean the ears especially in children, because the risk of bleeding like this is huge and the majority of the earwax will actually be pushed into the inside, triggering ear plugging, hearing loss and infection ear. The ear already has its own cleansing mechanism, which if it turns out it is still not enough, clean it in consultation with the ENT doctor, not with a cotton bud.
Then for bloody ears, this can happen because there is injury to the ear canal, or a tear in the eardrum. To be able to know it must be seen directly, and for that, you should check your child at the ENT doctor. The doctor will later see your child's ear canal using a special tool, then if there is blood that dries and clogs will be removed as he removed the earwax. If there are other treatments such as drugs that are consumed or dropped into the ear, will be adjusted to the results of the examination and diagnosis.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much because this is not a dangerous condition, avoid putting anything in your child's ears including water, be careful when bathing and avoid swimming first. So, hopefully answering your question.
