Should i clean my ear with carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide?

Ear Wax: Products like Murine, Auro & Debrox contain Carbamide Peroxide. They are made to clean ears. Low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide are sometimes used to loosen wax before it's removal.

Will a mix of alcohol & peroxide clean out impacted ear wax? 

Will a mix of alcohol & peroxide clean out impacted ear wax? 

Impacted ear wax: Impacted ear wax or cerumen is best softened with either hydrogen peroxide, debrox, Cerumenex or olive oil.

Have your primary care provider check your ear(s) and clean them or refer you to an ear, nose and throat specialist as needed. Please do not use q-tips. Ever. ...Read more

Should I do sea salt soaks or the ear care antiseptic to clean my ears?

Neither: The ear canals are self cleaning structures. The skin of the ear canals and eardrums migrate toward the outer opening automatically as the dead skin cells are replaced by new skin cells. Rarely does the ear canal become blocked unless the individual is using cotton applicators, tissue paper, paper clips, bobby pins, pencils, hearing aids or letter openers which tend to push wax into the ear canal. ...Read more

Do cotton balls in your ear help swimmers ear?

No: Swimmer's ear is misnomer for external otitis. This is an infection, dermatitis of the skin of the external ear canal. A cotton ball would only help if you want to prevent water from getting into the ear canal. External otitis may be the result of swimming, but is often the result from q-tip usage, fungal infections, bacterial infections, all involving the outer ear. No cotton balls won't help. ...Read more
