Is Peroxide Bad For Your Ears
Is rinsing your mouth with hydrogen paroxide a bad idea for whitening teeth? If so what are the side effects?
Won't do much and..: Rinsing with hydrogen peroxide in the concentration available to you won't whiten your teeth. Rinsing with hydrogen peroxide on a regular basis is not a good idea as it may irritate the soft tissues of your mouth and cause other issues.

Is pouring hydrogen peroxide in your ears ok to do? I've tried and heard it helps dry out wax and helps with ear infections
Wax in ears: Hydrogen peroxide can help loosen wax in the outer ear so it can drain out on its own. Never use q-tips in your ears as they push wax back in. There are little hairs that brush the wax out as long as it is soft and loose- so the peroxide helps with that. It won't prevent middle ear infection- those are behind the ear drum. ...Read more

ear pain, ENT put peroxide in it this morning and I instilled cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) in it tonight for infection. Is this a combination to be concerned about?
Should be fine: The peroxide was, likely, to help remove ear wax, though it can, also, be used to kill germs. The cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) is for infection and/or inflammation. So, cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) should help if there is an infection like swimmer ear (AKA Otis externa) in two ways: 1) kills germs, 2) makes it less red and painful. I wouldn't put both peroxide and cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) in your ear at the same time, but hours apart is fine. ...Read more
