Earwax is as hard as cement to block the ear canal
It was taken out by general anesthesia
Xiao Zhao is from Haining. A few days ago, he suddenly cried that he had earache. Ms. sun, his mother, hurriedly took him to the local hospital for examination. Local doctors found that Xiao Zhao suffered from otitis media and a lot of earwax in his ear, especially in his right ear. The ear canal was blocked by a big earwax. But as soon as he touched the earwax, Xiao Zhao cried for pain and refused to take it out. After several attempts, the local doctors had to give up, and Xiao Zhao refused to go to the local hospital.
As a result, doctors had to carry out general anesthesia operation, and take out Xiao Zhao's earwax through video otoendoscopy, "general anti-inflammatory work is done well, Xiao Zhao will not leave any sequelae.". Because general anesthesia alone costs more than 3000 yuan, plus hospitalization costs, Xiao Zhao spent 5000 yuan to get earwax. (this article is exclusively compiled by WYH, editor of sihai.com.

Sometimes the baby scratched his ears alone and said it itched. So, what should parents do? In normal times, how should they care for their baby's ears?
1. Use cotton swabs skillfully. If the baby is found to be wet near the ear canal after bathing, it can be gently wiped with a cotton swab instead of going deep; in addition, it can be dried with a hair dryer (about 30 cm away from the ear canal, weak wind). Wet the clean towel and wring it dry. Roll a corner of the towel on your finger and gently wipe the outer ear of your baby. If you use a cotton swab to clean your ears, do not put the swab in the invisible part of your baby's ears. The top of the cotton ball is small and the bottom is large, which can prevent the cotton swab from penetrating into the inner ear of the baby and accidentally damaging the eardrum.
2. Keep away from second-hand smoke. The smell of cigarettes will stimulate your baby's delicate nose and throat, making it easier for the bacteria to survive and reproduce in these two parts, thus reducing the resistance. Once the bacteria enter the middle ear, it is easy to cause infection. So if you or your family have a habit of smoking, now you have the best reason to quit smoking - for the sake of your baby's health. (this article is exclusively compiled by WYH, editor of sihai.com.

3. Keep away from the voice. Avoid keeping your baby surrounded by strong sounds for a long time. For example, don't turn on the stereo or TV loudly next to your baby. Because if the baby is in a noisy environment for a long time, the inner ear cell cilia will be damaged.
4. Avoid water. When bathing the baby. Keep your ears from getting water. The baby's ears can be pressed from back to front to close to the face, which is not easy to cause water in the ears. If the water can be used soft cotton stick, in the head of the cotton propped up in a fluffy shape. Gently insert the ear and rotate, but not too deep, provided that the baby's head can not move properly. And the best time to swim with your baby is within 1 hour.
