Re: ear pain from ear plugs

I wear ear plugs each night and now and then I wake up with ear pain.. I find sometimes they go in too far just from moving around and laying on my ears.. and irritate my ear canal. One thing is that maybe the ear plugs you are using aren't fitting your ear right.. are you using the foam ones? Those are the best to use.. and don't push them in too far. When my ear irritates me I take a Q-tip and soak it in hydrogen peroxide and clean my ear with it.. it helps soothe it, but also cleans out any possible bacteria from the ear plug.
