my 3 year old son gets a lot of ear wax and it is usually quite hard and dry so i can't ever fully clean his ears without irritating them. is there a way to soften it? is it something to worry about?
Hi, you have to repeatedly add 2-3drops of warm oil in ear canal and keep wad of cotton in ear. Will dissolve hard wax. Air and dust should be prevented near ears. Good luck.
