While growing up, having particularly waxy ears, my mom always cleaned my ears out with hydrogen peroxide. She said the bubbles would bubble up the excess wax and she would get a good deal of wax out of my ears with q-tips and kleenexes. She also said it would kill bacteria in my ears.
My hearing has always been slightly sub-par my whole life, by the way. Not significantly deaf, but I can tell.
Does this sound bad to the medical people on this board? Could this, in theory, cause damage of some sort? Have you ever heard of anyone else doing this? (i haven’t)
