I have problems using q-tips because it makes me want to cough so hard that I'm often reduced to gagging when I'm trying to clean my ears. I heard i you just let Hydrogen Peroxide kinda sit there, it'll do the work for you, but I'm afraid that I'll be left gagging still... Is it recommended?
No, when I put it in it fizzed, bubbled and then there was a sucking/vaccuum sound, like it slipped into a pocket of the ear where I don't think it belonged. Horrible ear infection with multicolored drainage followed.
The doctor used a saline solution that was much gentler. This relieved some pain and blockage but did not heal it, that took about a year.
