Anyone know what I've done to my ear?
Been a bit stupid. So, my ear has been a little bit muffled (from ear plug use?)for a week or so, really mild pain. I used some Otex Express but my ear just feels full and it hasn't done anything.

So today I put some hydrogen peroxide in, I think 11%. Okay, wow-I felt sick & dizzy and the pain was unreal. On a scale of 0 to childbirth(10), around a 7. This has lasted for hours, I've taken a lot of painkillers & it has eased but still painful and now more muffled. The pain was such that I was moaning with how bad it was

I tried the Otex again to see if that helped and another spray with acetic acid in but pain went to about a 7.5

A doctor did tell me over the phone to carry on using the hydrogen peroxide and drops-yes.

Not the best place to post but I'm not on other forums or social media-just wanted to know if anyone has had anything similar happen or you know what I've done1dunno1

Impacted cerumen(earwax)
Earwax, also called cerumen, is made by the body to protect the ears. The ear wax has both lubricating and antibacterial properties. Untreated buildup can lead to hearing loss, irritation, pain in the ear, dizziness, ringing in the ears and other problems. Earwax can be removed in several ways; some of these methods can be done at home.

Re: Anyone know what I've done to my ear?
Cold water in the ear can cause nausea/dizziness. Use close to body temp.

Just normal water sprayed through a syringe into the ear to flush it will eventually loosen and remove most blockages. Use a syringe that has a nosle with a bend to it.

Have some one help you. They will pull down on the ear lobe and then spray they warm water into your ear. Try for 30 mins spraying and draining over and over.

Stool softener left in the ear for a while will also loosen things. You shouldn't really need hydrogen peroxide anymore.

Re: Anyone know what I've done to my ear?
Yeah I think using too hot or cold water (or peroxide) could be the problem

I've cleaned my ears with peroxide before and it was a very pleasant, bubbling feeling

I don't know how peroxide would react if you already had a wound or infection in your ear

I am not a doctor, just a guy that has shot peroxide into ear hole before

Re: Anyone know what I've done to my ear?
Shouldn't have been that painful unless your eardrum is actually torn, i.e. has a hole in it.

That would also explain the muffled sound; it just doesn't vibrate correctly if torn.

You need a doc to physically look in there before putting anything else in there.

I'm not a doctor but I played one on tv.

Best wishes.

contrary to what you may believe a torn eardrum isn't painful with peroxide.

i have 2 torn drums permanently.

when i peroxide my ear it travels to my throat, really quickly fights off any cold type sore throat.

DO NOT leave the hydrogen peroxide in for more than 15-20 minutes. Always flush it out with warm water using a syringe. DO NOT jam the syringe into your ear canal when doing this or you can damage your ear drum! There need to be space for the fluid to escape.

Ear ache turned into bad ear infection I fought off and on for over a year and it sent me to the ER with sepsis.

buy yourself a small probe camera on ebay and have a look in your ear see what damage you've done.

i would image you've burnt the skin, but hopefully that's about it.

you might have an infection cavity that you've cleared out.

either way it should heal and unless you've got blood or green liquid running out of your ear, you will be fine.

carry on with the peroxide. but dilute it with cold boiled water. you want to mix 5 small cups of water with one small cup of peroxide.

peroxide is one of , if not the best antibiotic.

it's what killer white blood cells produce when they engulf a pathogen.

and it's the same thing raw honey produces on contact with moisture, giving honey its antibacterial effect.

Weirdly, I got this right before covid in march 2020, overuse of in-ear headphones on a building site, a big puss ball grew in my ear, I think it was an in-growing hair, popped it with a cotton bud and pus poured out for about a week, very sore, swollen head, went to doc. and got ear drops but they told me I burst my eardrum with the cotton bud. I didn't, it was an in-growing hair on the bottom of the ear canal. Hope it goes away soon.

Re: Anyone know what I've done to my ear?
careful with hydrogen peroxide

I used it to ward off colds

my doc told me he recently had a lady who was using it and this time she had a small hole in her eardrum she didn’t know about and she burned up some of the delicate equipment inside, and it’s permanent damage

make damn sure you don’t have a perforated eardrum if you use hp, and 1-3% is all you should use

Try to get to an ENT Dr if you can, he saved my life. I saw every Dr, ER, cat scan, peroxide, antibiotics, had tubes put in at 56. I tried it all and was never once refered to an ENT until my last time at the ER they were sending me home to die I guess, Wife threw a fit they sent in an ear DR and I was admitted straight ti ICU.

Hate incompetent Dr's.
