    My response is nooooooo.... because ears are *generally* capable of cleaning themselves.

    You said that the "Dr has checked my daughters ears" ... and the Dr said her ears were waxy. Did they follow up by suggesting you clean her ears? I would ask the doctor. If next time the Dr says her ears are waxy, jump in and ASK - should I clean them, and if yes, then how?

    If your Dr didn't say for you to clean them then maybe they were just stating a fact, not subtly suggesting that you clean them. Every doctor I've seen says not to fiddle with your ears as it just causes more problems for them to fix.

    I've always been told never stick anything smaller than your elbow in your ears. This has come from people within the medical profession.

    My brother has had issues with wax buildup and the doctor would prescribe some ear drops, not sure exactly what it was but I do remember they worked.

    I'd just have a chat with your doctor next time you see him and ask if anything should be done or not.

    Thanks everyone :-) the last 2 times she's been at the Dr my mum actually took her as I've been at work and mum hasn't asked whether the wax is an issue, when I've taken her and they've checked her ears they haven't mentioned the wax. If I see wax I usually wipe it out wipe a baby wipe but have never stuck anything in there. I'll ask the dr next time I'm there :-)

    Ask GP next time ur there. But iv also been taught never to stick anything in baby ears as thry are so young and can do damage.

    Even adults arents supposed to use cotton buds as it pushes alot of the wax in further which is damaging. There are those special ear wash devices that flush it out instead .
