Cork in the ear of a child

We recently did an endoscopic examination of adenoids in a younger daughter in the hospital. During the examination it turned out that there were sulfur plugs in her ears. The most interesting thing is that before this we were at the ENT and audiologist, and not one of them saw this problem. And the audiologist also made a diagnosis that says that the child has fluid in the ears. After getting rid of traffic jams, this diagnosis was dropped, but by a private doctor.

A sulfur plug is a cluster of sulfur that closes the ear canal and does not pass by itself. Outside this cork is not visible, because she is inside. But if the ENT looks at the child carefully, he should notice it.

The most interesting thing is that this problem appears in those children whose mothers are too concerned about hygiene and regularly clean their ears with cotton buds. Even those that sell for babies, i.e. with limiters, can lead to accumulation of sulfur. In general, for hygienic purposes, it is enough to wipe the visible part of the ear with a towel, and it is not necessary to climb inside.

It is difficult to notice that your baby has cork ears. They do not cause inconvenience and do not manifest themselves. If such a problem appeared in an adult, then most likely it will be noticeable to himself. There will be congestion in the ear, hearing loss. After the bath it will be especially felt, because cork swells when exposed to water.

But the child may not respond to the appearance of traffic jams. The only thing that mom can notice is that the baby often asks again and does not hear something. But this happens only when sulfur closes the ear canal by more than 70%.


When we were on the examination, our daughter had a special device with a light bulb in her nose and ears. I saw the entire nasopharynx and ears enlarged on the big screen. For comparison, the doctor put a light bulb in my ear and a daughter. And I saw with my own eyes that her entire auditory canal was closed. Doubt that in a private clinic just decided to make more money, did not arise.

It was decided to get rid of traffic jams here, otherwise the doctor would not be able to continue the examination. The procedure is painless, but the impressionable child may be frightened by a large syringe that is used to wash the ear. My daughter sat quietly, and I just held her head. Washing was done with plain warm water. The syringe was without a needle, but with a special nozzle. The doctor gently inserted it into his ear and poured in water, which immediately poured into the pan with the remnants of cork.

If the cork were dry, we would be asked to first douse the hydrogen peroxide in the ear, which will soften it. I also know that there are special drops that soften the sulfur plug, but I will not advise them, because we did not use them.

Everything turned out to be not at all scary, the main thing is that the cork was noticed and removed.
