Is there a safe way to remove ear wax for a child with tubs? Our ENT is no longer available and he is bothered by the wax build up.

See your Pedi: i would have your Pedi or FP take a look first. I would not put anything in the ear, more so with PE tubes. If your ENT is not avilable, find who is in his place, as your child will need follow up with ENT.
