My little girl had an ear infection. Actually it was a double ear infection. Her ears were also so jam-packed with earwax that the doctor (D.C.) couldn't see passed it to the ear drums. So I took an eye dropper and filled up her ear canal with Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). I had her lay her head to the side for all of this. I let it bubble until it slowed to almost a stop. My other daughter called it a volcano. The H2O2 ate away at the earwax. We then filled a bulb syringe with warm water and had her tip her head the other way so we could flush her ear. We made it a game and let her say, "One... Two... Three... SQUIRT!!" It was hilarious. She would wiggle a little bit from the burst of water, but it didn't hurt her at all. We were successful in removing the extra and hardened earwax this way. After it was gone I filled up the ear canal again with H2O2 to clear up the infection. Within 24 hours her symptoms were gone and there was visible improvement on the ear drums. The doctor said that whenever you feel a cold coming on, put a drop or two of H2O2 in your ears since most illnesses begin in your ears.
Good to know.
