ENT follow-up visit. During routine follow-up appointments, the ENT doctor will evaluate the child's pe tubes (position, obstruction, signs of infection, etc...).

Hi, my left year got blocked. I assume its for ear wax...It happened when I woke up yesterday and it is still there. How can I get rid of it?

Ear drops. There are many over the counter ear drops available. Most of them soften the wax, and some even have an ingredient that helps bubble the wax away from your eardrum (and out of your ear). Another cheap and easy way to soften the wax and get it out is stool softener liquid. Just put some in your ear, and let it sit for awhile each day. Eventually it will soften and fall out. Good luck!
