his ear is stilll later very sensitivea dnt here looks to be a lto of wax in there - coul this be casueing hte pain?

Yes it can, if there's enough of it. If there#s a lot of it you can end up with an infection building up behind the wax.

How's his hearing - if it's a lot of wax that's causing the pain it might be making him a bit hard of hearing as well.

no seems ok
its just if its knocked or when he takes his jumper off

WigWamBam Thu 06-Oct-05 20:12:32

Might still be the wax. Another trip to the GP, maybe.

Yes, agree with WWB. Ear wax can make your ear quite sore. But it might also be something else - best to get it checked.

Hope ds is better soon Cod.

I can't help it, everytime i see a thread about ears or hearing, I just want to type "Pardon?". I've resisted the urge so far though.

scaryman Thu 06-Oct-05 21:56:26

Pmsl. Quite often I just work my way down the list of active convo's giving my really helpful one word answers - yes, no, bollocks etc. Might actually do that tomorrow.
