Peroxide in ears?

Okay, you know when you have A LOT of ear wax, or a cut in your ear you sometimes poor peroxide in there and leave it for a bit.

In the like crease of my ear, I have a pimple, and it's killing me, and i want to use peroxide to dry it out and remove the gunk.

Is this safe during pregnancy?

  • Peroxide in the ear can't harm baby in utero.

    some soaks through the skin and can enter the blood stream.
    same reason you shouldn't use certain skin care items, ect.
    she wasn't dumb for asking.

    but no! it's safe. =]
