Cotton stuck in ear

My son was cleaning his ears and the end of the cotton swap came completley off and got logged in his ear. It is not causing any pain, just bugging him at the most. What can I do to get it out, should I try ear drops or make an appt with a doctor?

Ear drops are not going to do any good. Sadly I think if you want it removed risk free you will need to take him to the doctor.

YOU NEED TO TAKE HIM TO THE DR. SO THEY CAN IRRIGATE HIS EAR.  I HAD THAT HAPPEN TO ME ONCE AND I ENDED UP WITH A VERY BAD EAR INFECTION, BECAUSE BACTERIA STARTED TO GROW ON THE COTTON.
