Patient

Q: I have stretch my ear to 8mm and it's gotten infected and has a crusty puss in my ear as I took plug out completely and I'm just wondering how to clean it properly

Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

You may have a simple case of ear wax. And if you don't have ringing in your ears, you can try to clear you ears by trying the following:
Pour 3% Hydrogen Peroxide into the affected ear
Point the affected ear to the sky
Let the peroxide bubble in the ear
When done, point the ear the other way to clear the ear wax
You may want to collect the ear wax in a tissue paper

Repeat this procedure several times a day to clear all the wax. If you see blood or get pain while doing this, please stop and see a Doctor. I hope this helps you. All the best.
