Does it hurt to clean your ears with hydrogen peroxide?

Probably not

Cleaning
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

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.

I went to icings to pierce my ears & i think i'm allergic to something that's in the ear care solution, can i use hydrogen peroxide instead?

Won't hurt.

If you have an infection, then hydrogen peroxide may be slightly helpful. If you have an allergic reaction, a topical hydrocortisone cream may help.

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.

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.
