I'm sure with the summer vacation season upon us very soon, that you will love to read Dr Moser's newest blog!
Do you like vacations? I personally don't like vacations because it always seems to be such a hassle to plan all the details for a trip I may not like and sleeping in a strange bed in a strange city in a place I don't know. Don't even get me started about why I hate flying or driving on long trips.
How about you, do you like planning and taking a vacation? How much work is it for you?
From itchy ears to ear infections, many community members have problems with their ears and related structures like sinuses and tonsils. So what do the ear, sinuses of the face, and the tonsils look like?
You may want to think about a walk in medical clinic or an urgent care clinic if your regular doctor is not available rather than visit a hospital emergency room unless you feel that your child is in an emergency situation.
Nobody here can guess how ill your child is an you know your child better than anyone else.

Dr Moser hates the use of Q Tips to clean out ear wax. But why? In this oldie but goodie blog from 2006, Q-Tips -- Weapons of Ear Destruction? Dr Moser says why they aren't such a good idea to clean out your ears.
So are you guilty of using a Q-Tip or other implement to clean out your ear wax? When I was a kid my mom used to clean out my dried out ear wax with the rounded end of a bobby pin. I would get impacted ear wax that would build up and she would regularly clean my ears out. My sisters didn't have this problem, only me. In college I remember getting my ears cleaned out at the Student Health Center when I couldn't hear very well.
So do you clean out your ear wax and what do you use?
