Hydrogen Peroxide Dissolves Ear Wax
[link to www.earthclinic.com]



We heard about this treatment from an ENT (Ear Nose Throat) MD and have practiced it for years. We love it! We have passed the practice on to friends who have in turn passed it on their friends. However, before you try it, check with your doctor first! We just had a report of severe ear pain from a reader in the UK (see below).

NOTE: For safety, don't do this treatment before flying. Make sure there are a few days between the treatment and getting on a plane. Also, do not try this remedy if you have existing ear or jaw pain -- it may make the condition worse! If you have any doubts about trying this remedy, don't try it... Contact your doctor first and get his/her opinion.

The recipe:
Lay a towel down on your bed or carpet. Then fill a dropper (buy at the pharmacy in the infant section) with hydrogen peroxide. Lying on your side, fill one ear with hydrogen peroxide. After a few moments you will hear fizzing. Quite normal. After a minute or two, add more peroxide. Wait, relax, enjoy. After another few minutes, add more. The peroxide fizzes away, which is why you must keep adding more. Wait until the fizzing stops -- 10 to 15 minutes -- indicative that the wax has been dissolved. Shake remaining liquid from your ear onto the towel and repeat on the other ear. Since this takes time, you may want to do one ear one day and the other the following day.

If you feel a "slushing" in your ear following this treatment, you probably did not give the peroxide enough time. This will feel quite uncomfortable but don't be alarmed! The peroxide probably dislodged the wax but did not dissolve it. Try again. Trick is to keep the ear filled with liquid. You'll be amazed at how much it fizzes up. We did this on a friend a few years back and a huge piece of ear wax floated up and out of his ear. This same person had to go to an ENT every year or two to have chunks of ear wax removed so you can imagine how grateful he was to have a do-it-at-home treatment that actually worked!

If you use ear plugs, you can also clean them using hydrogen peroxide. Simply put peroxide in a cup and toss in the plugs... they will be back to perfect condition within 20 minutes or so.

The ear is delicate. Never put cold water inside the ear. Warm water to slightly more than room temperature, add some hydrogen peroxide, let fizz about 5 min, drain. Repeat.

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Dissolves Ear Wax
I've have used hydrogen peroxide for cleaning my ears for decades now. It really works. I apply it slightly differently than pouring it into my ears. I take a q-tip soaked in hydrogen peroxide and clean it that way about 2-3 times per week or whenever my ears start itching.

Hydrogen peroxide is a great medical kit addition.

Idol get real. Learn how your body works and what happens in it. understand.

Sure have a family doctor and stuff, but (I guess this dosn't apply to you, Idol) learn how your body works. Whats going on how your immune systems works, whatherbs are antibiotic. What local plants are antiseptic tc etc.

Be response able for your health.

Be response able for being heal thy (self).

learn how to play stupid word games to appear smart.

I heard the hydrogen peroxide ear infection thing from an old bloke around here.

Your idea about the cotton bud/q tip is a great one cheers.

OP you are a champion. Great effort posting as useful home medicine thread.

Does it help CURE tinnitus too? Any suggestions? I have thought about trying olive oil (with or without garlic) drops in ear, thinking about it more and more lately. Asked my doctor awhile back and she did not think it would be harmful.

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Dissolves Ear Wax
I had an ear infection and went to the ER at martin army hospital, fort benning.

the ER doc almost cussed me out when i told him i had put peroxide in my ear. He said i was lucky I didnt bust my eardrum. he told me that if i used peroxide in my ears again, to make sure i diluted its strength with water.

Good to do also if you feel a cold coming on....just do not do if you have a perforated eardrum.

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Dissolves Ear Wax
You will laugh but it is true. In the rural south small cockroaches would occasionally crawl into people's ear canals while they were asleep. And the roaches have no mechanism for backing up. This would naturally drive you crazy at 3 am. As an ER physician I devised a simple remedy: pour in 3% hydrogen peroxide (about 2 cc) then pour in mineral oil and the cockroaches would have then floated out on the bubbles. This was about 15 years ago but I imagine it still works.

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Dissolves Ear Wax
Yes, this works very well...:)
When I was little, I remember my DR telling my Mom about this, because I used to get a lot of ear infections, until they took out my tonsils.

I still do it today... :)

I also use a diluted Peroxide as a mouth wash sometimes, if it feels like my gums are irritated, or wanting to bleed, after I've had to have dental work done.
I figured that 1 out, after the Dentist gave my Dad a prescription for Peridex...looked at the label, and all it was , was a diluted Hydrogen Peroxide solution.
I mix it about 50/50 and swish for a minute or so...usually a day or 2 is all I have to do before everything is good again...:)

Hydrogen Peroxide is really good at helping speed healing in cuts and abrasions too...the extra Oxygen in it helps the body heal.

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide Dissolves Ear Wax
Hydrogen peroxide doesn't really dissolve ear wax, it basically dislodges the wax and bubbles it out. What I recommend is 2-4 drops of glycerin, or olive oil placed in ear before going to bed. The oil will dissolve the ear wax making it more liquid. However, it will still be present in your ear. So the next morning place 4 drops of hydrogen peroxide in your ear to clean it out. Afterwards, use 3-4 drops of glycerin once per week before going to bed and clean out with hydrogen peroxide in morning to maintain clean ears. Wax is an oil and as you know water does not dissolve oil. Only an oil dissolves and oil thats why you use an oil first.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 995112


My mom used an ear candle on me once several years ago. I have constant problems with my left ear feeeling like there is too much pressure in it. The ear candle apparently dissolves wax and draws it up into it. After she was done she cut it open to show me and I was absolutely disgusted with the amount of wax that was in it. Apparently, my ear was clogged with wax. Felt better after that, but not completely. I dunno....there are people who say the ear candle is a scam and it's not really ear wax you see but candle wax that changes color when burned.
