      Earwax protects the ear from dirt and other foreign particles. It may not cause any medical issues and doesn’t always have to be removed.

      On the other hand, if your child is complaining of a problem that relates to earwax, the Nemours Foundation offers these suggestions:

      * Earwax that is causing pain should be examined and treated by a doctor.
