I have a scratch in my ear with a scab. What should I do?
I have what looks like a tiny tiny tiny white scab on the inside of my ear. I think I got the scratch from a paper clip (dont ask)a week or 2 ago. Today I had an itch and I went to rub my ear and black stuff came out. I think It's dried blood. I cleaned it out with salt water and Q-tips. I think the dried blood was there because I dont normally clean the part of my ear that the scratch is on (its in a tiny little nook). Now that I cleaned it with salt water, will the cut heal? It's pretty small and I had to use a mirror and a flash light to see it.

As a nurse, I can tell you that it will heal up fine within a few days, as long as you don't scratch the scab off.
And yes, the black stuff is just dried blood - so don't stress!

Leave it alone and it will heal. Don't pick at it, or it could get infected. Maybe put a bit of antibiotic ointment on it if you're concerned it will get infected.
