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

Can I put flonaze directly in my ear? I have used it for a year and my allergies are better. But I can hear the fluid in my ear. Stacey S

Wrong place: Flonase is usually used for the nasal cavity. However I can see how it may be used for the ear canal when it has an inflamed issue. Nonetheless the aqueous nature may induce a fungal infection in the ear canal instead. You need to consult an allergist to find out what may be causing the ear problem. Perhaps the fluid is causing a fungal infection & and the flonase is counter-acting it. ...Read more
