Hello Budi,

Thanks for the question. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a chemical liquid formed from oxygen bonds which is widely used as an antiseptic liquid, Hydrogen peroxide works by releasing oxygen (oxidation process). This oxidation process is what may cause discoloration of the ear fluid that comes out. In addition, usually this oxidation process causes the formation of foam which serves to clean the area that was dripped with this liquid. Please continue to use these ear drops as recommended by your doctor. If you are still in doubt or if your complaints persist after treatment, please consult your ENT specialist immediately. Meanwhile, keep your ears clean and dry. Avoid inserting any object into the affected ear.

Hope this information is useful.

Dr. Aloisia
