Hot Water in Ear
thankyou14 posted:
Last night I syringed my ear with water that may have been too hot, but I'm not sure. I think it was around 105 degrees or possibly a little higher.

Is it possible this could have damaged or changed my hearing in any way?

I think everything is ok, but I am just worried because I normally syringe or flush my ear with water that is cooler than that. When the water went in my ear it felt hot but it didn't hurt. I did not get dizzy or experience any problems unless my hearing has changed and I do not notice it?

Thank you for any help.

I wouldn't be worried if it didn't hurt, and if you don't notice any hearing changes.
