Probably not. Unless you have a perforated eardrum putting a little warm hydrogen peroxide in the ear canals shouldn't hurt. It may help soften the wax.
Depends. If you leave enough HP behind that the canal remains wet, you foster conditions for germ growth, swelling & cracking of the skin. This can give rise to the equivalent of swimmers ear. There are solutions designed to clear ear wax that do not have this potential when used as instructed.
No. Hydrogen peroxide at 1/2 strength(diluted with water) will clean out ear wax safely. If you have a perforated ear drum though consult an ear doctor prior to putting any drops in the ear.
Ear cleaning. As long as you do not have a perforation of your ear drum, hydrogen peroxide is perfectly safe to use in the ears.
I went to icings to pierce my ears & I think I'm allergic to something that's in the ear care solution, can I use hydrogen peroxide instead?
I cleaned my ears using hydrogen peroxide and after that, my other ear hurts but the other is fine. This is the first time this happened.
Acquired problem. Unfortunately, the peroxide turns to into water after use and too much moisture in the ear canal can lead to overgrowth of germs/fungus.You may have triggered the equivalent of "swimmers ear".A solution of alcohol and vinegar may help it dry out and eliminate the fungus, but may be too painful to use.Make a call to your doc & see if they want you to come in or just send out meds.

I use hydrogen peroxide to clean and qtips to take out the wax. I know its bad to use qtips. My ear hurts, I use h.P.To see if there is wax but none.
Stop with the qtips. No fingers or bobby pins either. You have probably given yourself "eczematous otitis externa". You need wax to help waterproof the ear, prevent itching, and to be a natural antibiotic and antifungal. No more than 2x a month qtips for you. Consider trying the product comfort earx that you can get on amazon. If that fails, see an ENT for an evaluation and possible rx drop like dermotic. Read more...
