My 12 yr. old son has excessive ear wax in his ears. How do I remove ear wax clogged up in his ear canal? Is there an easy and safest way to remove ear wax?

Please consult an ENT doctor in your area. My sil goes to ENT doctor once in 6 months or so and gets the ear wax cleaned for her kids.
I’ve heard people use a solution (just 1 drop) to dissolve the ear wax which would then be easy to remove.
For my kids I use the baby buds – the usual ear buds but it has a thick head at the bottom leaving a little thin head to go into the ears. So even if the kids use it, only the short tip goes into the ears! I use it once in a month or so after giving head bath. My kids dont complain of ear wax for all these years.

Yes right. Once dr. asked me to use WAXONIL ear drops before I clean my ears. Even my paediatric suggested this for my baby. This ear drop will soften the dirt inside and we can easily remove the dirt using buds for children.

If the wax is excess, it is better to go to ENT specialist, he can remove it carefully using suction method and will clean it afterwards. As other moms suggested, For babies, we can use drops like "Dewax’ and clean it after 2-3 days with johnsons ear buds after the wax softens up.

I would suggest the best thing to do is consult an ENT doctor……… Usually no ENT docs recommend ear buds as they can harm the ear…. Buds should be used only to clear the outermost wide portion of the ear….

I go with shimna’s answer. Most Ent doctors discourage bud use.

Do you know that wax is a part of the ear’s natural cleaning process? But, sometimes the body may produce more wax than normal. This is when you should consider cleaning your toddler’s ear wax.
