My 6 month old baby has watery ear wax discharge that is crusting around the opening

Hi, hope you can help, my 6 month old baby has watery ear wax discharge that is crusting around the opening. he is also teething really badly with white showing under the gums but nothing is through yet. really worried about the ear wax though. We will take him to the docs tomorrow but is it more urgent than that?

Pediatrician Dr. Vibin K V's  Response
its not an emergency as long as your child is otherwise fine & doing well. he will need an ENT evaluation completely. he must be having ear infection which is completely curable with oral medicines & about his teething issue donont worry, it ll all happen in its own time.
