Clean out cerumen buildup safely with a 50% water, 50% hydrogen peroxide solution. Have the patient lie with his or her head turned sideways and the affected ear facing up. Use a saturated cotton ball to drip the solution into the ear and let it sit for about 15 seconds. Then have the patient turn his head in the opposite direction so that the solution drains out of the ear. Repeat this procedure several times, as needed.
