Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

Do not be apprehensive, please consult a good ENT specialist for a complete ear evaluation. There can be blockage of the canal secondary to the impacted wax. Ear drum can be perforated; But, this is not commonly noticed in the young children. Finally, the chances of fluid in the ear drum cannot be ruled out.

Wish you good health.
