How would I know if there are any damages in my 10 months old niece ?

I was cleaning my 10 month old niece s ears using a normal-sized cotton buds (q-tips). I didn t know it was wrong. I think I inserted the buds as far as they can go inside the ear, and I m worried if I caused any damage to her ears and/or hearing. How would I know if there are any damages?

was there any bleeding from the ear? did your baby cry loudly for a longer duration of time? if not nothing to be worried.but getting your baby checked by an ENT surgeon is the best choice.

Hello Doctor, My son is 10 months old. Today evening, he played very enthusiastically and crawled and we were playing hide and seek games. After that we made him to laugh by doing funny activities.. Just a few minutes after that, he seems to have fits (I dont know how to explain that.. His face seemed red for a few seconds and his body became stiff). Today only we are noticing this peculiar act. 3 times he behaved like this today. I am worried, He is sleeping now. What might be the reason for this? Is anything serious? Please help me.
