Safety of Ear Ozone O3 treatments.
Ozone ear treatments are very effective already at very low concentrations of 5mg/l to 16mg/l when applied via a moistened Q-tip.
Application up to 3 x per day.
To avoid itching and irritation of the fine mucus membrane in your ear it is important to moisten the ear canal with a wet Q-tip. Simply spray some ozone water into your ear or dip the Q-tip into ozone water before inserting the Ozone into your ear.
Ear insufflation done via an ear scope (with pressure) can result in excruciating pain in and behind the ears. The pain can be so bad that most people go to the ER or to the doctor. The good news is that the pain is not due to any damage in the ear canal but “just” pain.
All this can be avoided by starting very slowly (1-3 minutes every few days) You can slowly increase the ozone insufflation after 2 to 3 months when you haven't experienced any pain, discharge or debilitating itching. If you have developed any pain then stop all ozone for at least 10 days.
Due to the substantial risk factors using an ear scope, we recommend the very gentle method via the Q-tip version. When using the Q-tip method no pressure is applied. The actual Ozone application is also done in seconds.
Be aware that existing infections can get temporarily worse during the ozone induced healing crisis.
