Hello this is Dr. Jack Shohet and I'm here to talk about how to use peroxide in the ear canal. First of all, I would recommend against using peroxide in the ear canal but if you are absolutely sure you have no eardrum hole or no ongoing infection, a dilute peroxide solution as you might find in over the counter wax product, wax removal product, could potentially help loosen the wax so that your body may expel it more easily on it's own or that it can be flushed out more easily by a primary care physician or that it could be removed more safely by your ear nose and throat doctor. I would not recommend using a straight hydrogen peroxide solution, I would use instead one of the over the counter products that has hydrogen peroxide as these have the proper dilution or the concentration of the hydrogen peroxide for use.
