You can take him to your GP, but get some Waxol from the pharmacy and put a few drops in his L Ear for three nights before your appointment. Often the Waxol will soften the wax and it will come out by itself, but sometimes your doctor will need to remove it by rinsing the ear. Using earbuds irritates the ear canal and causes more wax forming, it also pushes the wax to the back of the ear canal causing a wax plug. One need not clean deep into the ear, just wiping the outside of the ear with a wet facecloth is more than enough. The ear canal is self cleaning.
