Bloody discharge from an ear infection is common and usually nothing to worry about. It can happen when an eardrum bursts in order to drain pus from the middle ear space. It will usually stop on its own.  

Your pediatrician or ENT doctor may prescribe ear drops for the infection which will now be able to get into the middle ear space through the hole in the ear drum.
