I have an ear blockage due to water seems, no pain in ear, so thought of having hydrogen peroxide to clean my ear. Is it safe to use it?

Hydrogen peroxide has been traditionally used when the ear canal is fill up with the ear wax. This can be dangerous if the wax has not filled up completely and in that case it can damage the tympanic membrane or the kan ka parda. So beware.
