As every parent knows, children are constantly picking up bugs and as parents we want to do our best to help them, especially as a poorly child often leads to constant worry and days off nursery.

The ears are one of the most underrated parts of our body and yet they are vital to our child’s development. Most of the time there is no need to worry, but as children are less aware of the perils of putting a pencil or spoon in their ear, it is important to keep an eye on them and maintain good ear health.

Ear wax in children is normally a good sign as it helps to keep their ears healthy.  In fact, ear wax cleans, lubricates and protects the lining of the ear canal, trapping dirt and repelling water[1].

However, when ear wax builds up and gets stuck in the ear it can cause a blockage, which can lead to earache, dizziness or ear pain[2] – symptoms that often children can’t tell us about leading to an upset child who is in incredible discomfort.  In addition, as the ear is an open system, further infections can enter the ear easily, and wax build up can prevent the cleansing of the ear.[3]

There is a simple and easy way to deal with the problem with Baby Earol ®, a gentle, natural blend of pharmaceutical-grade olive oil and mineral oil, clinically proven to soften and break up ear wax, as well as soothe itchy and irritated ears. Baby Earol® is suitable for users aged 6+ months and is also recommended by healthcare professionals for use prior to an ear wax removal appointment

 Hilary Harkin, Acute Advanced Clinical Nurse Practitioner says; “Keeping our children’s ears healthy is incredibly important and as an often-overlooked part of the body it is one that often gets missed out.  While we want to encourage good ear wax production, when a build up does occur it is important that as parents you act quickly and promptly to remove any pain or irritation.  It is never a good idea to use harsh chemicals or products near a child’s ear, which is why I recommend Baby Earol to my patients, a pharmaceutical grade olive oil that provides a natural way to deal with the issue.”

 Baby Earol® is available from Amazon and Boots, with a RRP £6.50
