Accidentally left Carbamide Peroxide in right ear for 20 min. Sharp pain in right ear this morning. Had an ear infection 2 weeks ago.

Accidentally left Carbamide Peroxide in right ear for 20 min. Sharp pain in right ear this morning. Had an ear infection 2 weeks ago.

Your infection should not have returned HOWEVER you need to have the ear checked in any case!
Get it checked out as soon as practicable!
