May I know how to clean ur toddler's ear dirt? The doctor told us just rub his ears in circle motion n the dirt will self drop out~ But I don't think so, his ear dirt is reali alot n very dirty~ I bought a super bright ear stick to dig for him n manage to clean those outer one but deep inside is even more but I can't reach or dare not dig~ how to totally clear them off? Cos I feel it's too much scare will get infection.

Ear wax is actually a good substance in your child's ear to help trap dust particles and dirt to keep his ears clean. Over time it dries up and moves to the external ear canal and drops out on its own. Build up occurs when the ears are unable to expel more than the ear wax is produced. I believe that is your issue. You should not dig them as doing so will cause the wax to be pushed further in. Same thing goes for adults. You can either go to a doctor to flush it out if it causes discomfort or do so at home with ear drops (check that it is suitable for use with your toddler's age). On a daily basis, just clean the external will do.

Yes you can get ear wax drop to soften the wax and subsequently drop out by itself. Do not attempt to dig it yourself. It will cause ear infection. If you find it troubling your kid (e.g. can't hear well), you can visit doctor and let doctor do the ear washing.

Don't dig too deep inside your toddler's ears as it may push the earwax and compound it in the ear canal. You can get ear drops to soften the earwax.
