Doctor: 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 c an try to clear you ears by trying the following:Pour 3% Hydrogen Peroxide into the affected earPoint the affected ear to the skyLet the peroxide bubble in the earWhen done, point the ear the other way to clear the ear waxYou may want to collect the ear wax in a tissue paperRepeat 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.
