<span style="font-family:'century gothic';">My oldest ds Josh has a huge chunk of wax in his ear. We have tried the Hydrogen Peroxide and Warm water to remove it. Does anyone have any suggestions on what else we can do? I have looked in his ear and it is a large black and green wax blob. His Dr does know of it and did see it when he went in to have a Cupcake sprinkle removed from the other ear (Don't ask). I really want to avoid a trip to the Dr for this, but would like to get it clearded out as he keeps saying it hurts. Thanks!</span>

How about trying am ear candle. I use them quite often to sucessfully and safely remove built up ear wax. You can find ear candles at most health food stores, co-ops, and Whole Foods markets.

OTher than the ear candle (which I third <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">), you could try sterile forceps but you'd have to do this after he's asleep (unless he can hold VERY still).

<span style="font-family:'century gothic';">Thanks everyone, I only had time to go to Walgreens so I got a homeopathic ear wax removal kit and flushed his ear and it was a wood chip! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"></span>
