Ear Wax Removal
Ear wax keeps the skin lining the ear canal healthy. Children who swim a lot also need ear wax as it waterproofs the ear and kills germs. Removing too much ear wax leaves the ear canal dry and makes it very itchy. If your child produces too much ear wax or develops a blockage of wax in their ear, a visit to Village Pediatric Group might be necessary. If your child is showing signs of an ear problem, by pulling or rubbing at their ear, it could be excess ear wax.
At Village Pediatric Group, your pediatrician can assess your child’s ear problem and remove any wax, if necessary. They may use water or a saltwater solution to flush out the ear. It is important to have the ear checked by a pediatrician as it could be more serious, like an ear infection. Remember, never use a cotton swab to clean out your child’s ear. You might puncture the eardrum or push the wax down into the ear.
