Ear Infection or Cellulitis of Ear?

Can anyone tell me if I have an ear infection or cellulitis of the ear? I have a lot of scabs in the cymba area of my left ear since last Thursday. I keep picking it all out a few times a day & sometimes a little blood comes out. Is this a good idea? it also is painful when I touch that area or try to sleep on that ear.
Any ideas on what to do for my ear, see a doc? Currently have no insurance, but trying to get through job.
