Q.

Something in ear

Hi Doc,
My 3,5yr old has a white pimple like thing inside his ear. Not sure if its wax but I tried to remove it with a ear bud but he scream as if it hurts. I also put waxol in the ear but it didn''t losen. Its more inside just pass the ear opening. It is in the ear that has hole on the earlobe(born with hole in earlobe and hole on cheek/jaw). He also rubs the ear alot.
Please advise

Thanks
Andy

It is difficult for me to be sure but your son may have a boil in his ear canal or he may have put a bead or some other small object in the ear canal [this is quite common with little boys]. It would be best to ask your doctor to see him.
