black earwax in my 6 yr old

about every other day, i have to clean my youngest son's ears out because the wax in his ear is black and there is lots of it. he is only 6 years old and has only had 3 ear infections in his lifetime. what could be causing his earwax to turn black and why is there so much of it? it has done this since he was little. his doctor doesn't seem concerned, but he isnt the best doctor, but due to insurance reasons, i have to take my children to see him. does anyone have any insight to this? my other son who is 2 years older, has never had this problem.

Re: black earwax in my 6 yr old

I know my husband has problems with ear wax (lots of it) and his can be very dark; I wouldn't say black though. I always thought it was due to dirt and such. (He is also a farmer). If your son has had this for a long time as you said, I wouldn't think there would be too much to worry about. Have you done any searching on sites to see what this could mean?
