When we woke up this morning I noticed my 5 month old baby's ear had a bunch of dried blood in it. I took a wet q-tip and dabbed most of it away, to see if there was a scratch. I can't see a scratch, but there is a large scab/clot of blood inside his ear. I don't want to mess with it because I don't want to shove it farther in. What do you think this could be? He was pulling at his ear last night as I was nursing him. Do you think a mosquito or something got in it? He is actually completely normal and happy and isn't tugging at his ear anymore. Has this happened to anyone before? I don't want to overreact and take him to the dr. if it is just something simple. Thanks for your help! Is there another place I can cross post this?
