Pediatric Ear Wax Removal in the Twin Cities
Everyone produces ear wax, including your children. For most kids, ear wax doesn’t cause much of a problem. Human bodies naturally produces a certain amount of the sticky substance to protect the ear canal from unwanted water and debris. When a child produces an abnormal amount of ear wax, problems can occur. These issues include hearing loss, ear pain and even coughing, as the ear canal shares nerves with the throat.
If excessive ear wax is completely blocking your child’s ear canal, get the pediatric ear wax removal in Minneapolis/St. Paul that parents rely on. While cotton swabs are useful for many grooming needs, they are not made for cleaning ears. Applying too much pressure with a cotton swab can puncture your child’s eardrum and turn a small problem into a big one. Our providers carefully examine your child’s ears, and if treatment is necessary, remove the ear wax by using specialized removal tools and irrigation. This process is safe and dislodges any obstructive wax. If you have any concerns about your child’s ear wax, don’t hesitate to call our clinic to schedule an appointment!
