Stinky Ears

I was giving Gretchen a hug today and I noticed her ears stink. I think it's the earwax... Is this normal or sign of an infection? She doesn't have a fever and is still playful. I just never noticed it before.

What about behind her ears? When my dd was younger, there was a build up of.....I guess dead skin maybe, but it was really smelly. I never thought to wash behind her ears, but I do now!

Yes I had the same thing as ssmith. My ds had a buildup of crusty, stinky stuff behind his ears. I, like her, never thought to wash behind his ears either...I'm just now remembering some old saying "Don't forget to wash behind your ears!" LOL, Maybe that's why!

my daughters didn't stink but they do get build up back there if you don't wash it good, also i take a damp q-tip and clean (outside only) her ears to help with the wax build up.

I just cleaned out her ears a couple days ago, but I did notice some build up behind her ears (daddy bathes her) so that could really be the cause of the stink?

I could also be old soap sc_m. My hubby has been bathing Max. We still use an infant tub and he fills it way full so his ears are under the water when he starts splashing. I have even seen soap bubbles in his ears when Chris is drying him off. So once a week or so I clean his ears really good and wipe them out with a dry paper towel. All sorts of crud comes off of the folds of his outer ear.

I am so glad you asked about this because my ds has the same weird smell in his ears. He doesn't act any different or give any signs of infection either.
