In brief: See your doctor.

There should be little trouble with this, provided it is used properly.
Since you had ear problems in the past, it would be smart to see your doctor to be sure you are using this properly, and not causing more problems or damage to your ears.

If you have had a prior perforation of your ear drum or previous ear surgery, do not use over the counter drops until given the OK by your ear doctor. Use of these drops with a perforated ear drum can be very painful
