Brown Earwax?!

My oldest DD has always had dark brown earwax. Should I be concerned about this? She's never had an ear infection and I've always taken special care to not impact the wax when I clean it out.

  • It's normal. My youngest has always had dark brown wax and the pediatrician says it's normal, that we all have different shades of yellow or brown.

  • i don't think it's something to be concerned about, i think normal earwax is orangish to brownish anyway

  • I've read that brown earwax is totally in the normal range. I had it once and freaked, lol, then looked it up and it said it was fine. Still, if you're concerned, ask her doctor.
