My son woke up thismorning with dried blood in his ear canal. He was not acting ill, complaining of it hurting or running a fever. I assumed he scratched himself or one of his ear tubes came out and pulled a little skin or something since he seems fine. My concern is, how do I clean the dried blood from his ear safely? Using a q-tip will only push the dried blood further in and/or disrupt any scab in the ear canal. Any suggestions? Thanks!
