    I had pressure behind the eye and earache, even after using neti pot, suction machine and fluticasone. I found those worked great for sinuses, peroxide in ear canal alleviated ear pain almost immediately.

    Peroxide in the ears would ONLY help if you had a wax impaction or, perhaps, a mild skin condition in your external ear canal. It will not help middle or inner ear pressure, or the sinuses. If you experienced improvement in your ear pain, it may have just been a coincidence if you did not have an external ear issue.

    What kind of suction machine are you using....are you sucking mucous out of your nose?
