earwax cleaning

My 6 year old boy is afraid of cleaning his ear. What should i do? I can see ear wax from his ears. He will just run away when i told him im going to clean his ear wax. Any advise please?

Using a cotton swab would be the easiest, however try to distract him with toys, TV, or a conversation when u try to clean his ears. That might do the trick

Just get ear wax drops from the pharmacy And u don’t need to clean then because the drops will soften then wax. Very safe. Better than forcing to clean.

I try to clean just the outside of my son's ears. any deeper I'll bring him to his PD... won't try it incase I push the wax deeper in

From an ent I talked before our ears have mechanism to spit out the dirt automatically so no need to clean it with anything

you can clean it while he is asleep. there's a ear pick with led light which you can buy from kiddy palace.

Try olive oil ear drops ? They will soften the ear wax and help it to ooze out naturally.

do it while he is sleeping. or use oil to soften and it will come off easily

doctors will advise not to clean on our own
