“Ear Care with Peace of Mind”
An ear infection is very uncomfortable, irritating, and painful issue which most children experience. It often leads to long, loud nights as your child suffers the discomforts of ear pain. As a parent, you often fret over how to provide rapid relief for your child’s source of pain. Ear infections often lead parents to take their child to see their pediatrician or pediatric nurse practitioner for an antibiotic to treat the infection. However, the pain associated with the infection may remain for several days. Parents, you are not alone in the struggle to find relief from ear pain in your child. Ear pain is the second leading reason that parents seek medical attention for their child.
Symptoms of ear infections include pain in or around the ear, constant fussing or crying, pulling or rubbing of the ears, trouble hearing, headaches, or complaints of ear fullness. Ear pain can occur due to a variety of reasons, but mostly it occurs as a result of fluid behind the eardrum, an ear infection, swimmer’s ear, air pressure changes, ear canal injuries, or earwax buildup. Ear pain often becomes worse when children lay down, so it is important to remember to keep your child’s head at an elevated position whether awake or asleep, and do not insert anything into your child’s ear. Cotton swabs will only intensify the pain and may scrape the ear canal. Even with medical attention ear pain represents an ailment which few medications can treat quickly. Pediatricians or pediatric nurse practitioners can prescribe antibiotics to treat bacterial infections, but they often only prescribe acetaminophen or ibuprofen to treat symptoms or ear pain. These medications may take over an hour to provide relief at the site of discomfort.

While Ear Pain MD for Kids offers treatment options for pain associated with infections, another source of discomfort or irritation may be the buildup of excess or impacted earwax in your child’s ear. While it seems like a yucky substance, earwax plays a vital role in an ear’s function. It serves to both lubricate the ear, and it protects the ear from dirt, bacteria, debris, moisture, and insects that can damage the inner ear. Earwax is a sticky combination of sweat, dead skin cells, and sebum (a waxy oil secreted from glands in the ear canal). Some children naturally produce increased levels of earwax which may impede hearing or cause discomfort and even pain. Increased earwax production can be attributed to several factors. The genetic makeup of your child may lead to a naturally-occurring increased earwax production. Another factor is the use of hearing devices, such as hearing aids or ear buds. The use of these devices on a regular basis stimulates increased production of earwax.
Increased earwax results in the need to clean your child’s ears. Ear cleaning can be a difficult task especially with antsy children squirming to avoid what can sometimes be a painful cleaning process. Remember, you should never use cotton swabs when trying to clean your child’s ears. Cotton swabs push excess earwax further into the ear canal which may increase your child’s discomfort and pain. This may also lead to serious injuries. Ear Pain MD for Kids® is a simple solution meant to take the pain and hassle out of ear cleaning. It only take fifteen minutes for out patent-pending formula to dissolve hard-to-reach wax that can impact your child’s hearing. A clinical study shows that a majority of ears were completely clean and clear after using Earwax MD for Kids. 100% of people that used Earwax MD in the study were completely satisfied with the treatment.¹ Remember you should regularly clean your child’s ears to decrease their risk to ear infections or ear aches.
