Can you clean your ears with hydrogen peroxide? What if it goes down into them?

You can

Ear
Though water will do just as good. Your ears are closed off at the ear drum, so any fluid you pour into them will run out.

unless you have a perforated eardrum putting a little warm hydrogen peroxide in the ear canals shouldn't hurt. It may help soften the wax

Is it true that one can use hydrogen peroxide to clean the ears?

Yes

Head-ear
Hydrogen peroxide is a safe and inexpensive method of dissolving impacted ear wax. But it may be irritating if you do not have wax. So make sure frown from an ENT doctor that wax is the correct diagnosis.

Can you use hydrogen peroxide on a 5 day old ear cartilage peircing 3 times a day? Or how many times should u clean it?

Likely is fine

Cleaning
This is not likely to be a problem. However, if you think there is a problem (i.e. an infection) then you probably should have this examined. Sometimes a person can develop an allergy to nickel and it can simply appear chronically irritated.

Do you use hydrogen peroxide or alcohol to clean your ears?

Ear cleaning

Alcohol
There is no reason to use either product to clean the ears. Mild soap and water is more than enough. You should not be forcing materials into the ear canal other than water. Sometimes hydrogen peroxide might to used to clean if blood was in the ear. Alcohol will irritate the ear.

Can I use hydrogen peroxide to keep my baby's umbilical cord area clean?

Yes,but

Cleaning
I find it is only a benefit if used briefly to blot the area followed by drying.I prefer alcohol swabs several times a day.When the peroxide is left in place it converts to water and makes the area soggy and stinky.
