So DS's ear tubes have come out, you can visably see them in his ear canal. They are bugging him and he keep saying there is 'yukkies' and 'bees' in his ears as they must itch and feel quite irritating. It was suggested to DH to use ear wax cleaner drops (children's) as the reason the tubes are 'stuck' is that they are literally wedged in ear goo and wax from the drainage. So we look up this product and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA it contains peanut oil. OMG, is someone somewhere trying to give me a heart attack this week. I mean, REALLY!!! We never bought it but still...... :frightened

Your son is very lucky you are so vigilant and checked the ingredients on it. That would have been absolutely miserable for him if he had used it.

A friend who's an RN said they use olive oil in the hospital.

So happy you checked that BC2007. We need a relief smilie. Our family has learned from past experiences to check everything just like you do. Allergens have been known to be in many medications, lotions, cosmetics, hair products....going to the dentist is an extra check on things. Things I've probably forgot.....but she knows to check for herself now and when those new rules are in place it will be even better.

edit - I don't know about the olive oil....but I may have heard of mineral oil.

Phew, good thing you checked. It's those type of non food items that can sneak by more easily. Our Dr also recommends olive oil.

Wow! Had no idea. Thanks for posting!

We use mineral oil; DH is a physician.

Mineral oil is what we ended up using too. Hopefully it will work. I talked to one of the pharmacists where we get all presc. filled and that is what she suggested also. She said the cerumlol is too harsh for a little kid. (It was elsewhere it was suggested to my dh that we use the cerumlol. )

for those not allergic to peanuts.....check with your doctor before using that stuff anyway. It says NOT to use with middle ear infections, or perforated ear drum. to put in a tube, they put a hole in the ear drum....when the tube falls out, the hole may still be there. It's been a long time since I looked at it, but it used to say it could cause hearing loss if used with either of those conditions.
