I was wondering if maybe he had a wax issue because i have in the past so I made an appt withthe ped. The doc said that he had a lot of wax ( I was amazed at what he pulled out) and he had a double ear infection and he put Daniel on a higher dose of meds for it and asked us to come back in in 10 days cause he said that he wanted to recheck. today I noticed there was a lot of red looking wax in his ear and swabbed it out. so now I am curious Why d we have ear wax and why do some peo0ple produce so much and others dont!
I have to take Daniel back in April to redo the hearing test...talk about feeling like a bad mom. He never complained once...athough the tv was a bit loud....

My son failed the hearing test four times. The wax in his ears was so impacted that he had to have surgery to remove it. Because he didn't have it done until 2nd grade, he was behind in reading, writing and spelling and is still catching up over a year later. They said the wax he produces is 'sticker' than most and that his ear canals are very narrow. I now put drops in his ears to soften the wax and he hasn't had that problem since.
