[Q&A] I would like to seek advise on the best way to clean my toddler’s ears.

Question: Dear doctor,
I would like to seek advise on the best way to clean my toddler’s ears. Should I use any solution or just ear pick? My concern is I may harm/hurt my toddler. Thank you for your advise.

Answer: you can do it by using a cotton bud wet with some water, cleaning the pinna of the ear ( cuping telinga) but it is not advisable to use ear pick or cottion stick to dig through the ear canal as it may cause injury to the ear drum.
you need not worry too much about ear wax because it is a natural secretion from the ear canal for protection. If u are worried about impacted ear wax, then a doctor in ENT should help to solve the problem.
