Thanks for writing to us.
Unknowingly, your child did a right thing by putting an aniseptic ointment in the area. You now need to watch out for any discharge from the ear or pain, fever
, etc in which case consulting an ENT surgeon for local examination will be helpful.
Meanwhile do not insert anything into the ear canal
and keep the area clean to avoid any infection.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
