Guess: it depends on how much wax. A small amount should naturally be removed with your discharge. You could use your finger to see if you feel any wax. If in doubt however, see your doc for a pelvic exam.

Wax: An interesting problem. Well, probably the only way to both tell if there is wax there and to get it out would be under direct visualization. Which means you would need to go to the doctor and have a speculum exam to see and for the doctor to remove any foreign bodies. Because of the nature of the tissue there one can not see or feel for lost items by ones self or even with a partner.

Is it normal for my baby to have swollen genitals?

Yes: Newborns often have swollen genitals from mom's hormones and sometimes related to the trauma of coming through the birth canal. Older babies should not have swollen genitals. Suddenly swollen genitals in combination with fussiness or definite pain should be considered a medical emergency.

Follow the direction: With the med , it should tell you how far to insert the applicator, needs to get far enough up to stay in but you do not want to go too far or you can hurt yourself.
