Holy earwax! with a pic
 
So my nearly 6 year old has had a problem with earwax build up, the Dr.s look and say it will fall out on it's own, since he wasn't cooperative for them, but it wasn't falling out. I started putting warm olive oil in his ear and that caused the wax to come out of the one ear after a few days of doing it every day, but after about 2 weeks it would not come out of the one ear. So today I used a pair of hemostats to pull it out( very very carefully so I didn't go in too far) This is it in the earhttp://i920.photobucket.com/albums/a...ps69ec16f7.jpg

and this is what I got out!

Has anyone else ever seen a piece of wax so big? I don't know how he could hear with that thing in there :shock: Any tips to keep it from accumulating like that again?

That's quite incredible. Did your son say if it felt better once it was out - that must have been uncomfortable in there?

have you tried the earwax candles to clean his ears? or flushing them?

i heard the candles are disgustingly awesome. :wink:

Wow, that's icky and interesting at the same time. One of my nephews gets major wax and they go to the pediatrician every so often and they put in a medicated solution and flush it out with a little machine that looks kind of like a water pik.

earwax candles?

my dad used to irrigate ears with warm water . he was an old fashioned family doc, and I worked in his clinic I was like 16, 17, 18

I used to get earwax like this a few years ago. Also had incredibly oily hair no matter how often I washed it. All I can think of is maybe diet creating an increase in...er...bodily excretions?

Poor baby!

I have also heard that the candles can do a good job at drawing out wax.
