How can I safely gargle hydrogen peroxide?

Answer

You can safely gargle hydrogen peroxide by taking careful precautions. Remember never to swallow it. Hydrogen peroxide gargle is used for treating a sore throat and mouth. It is an antiseptic that cleans sores and removes phlegm, mucus and secretions from your throat.

  1. Pour out 10 milliliters of hydrogen peroxide gargle

    Pour out 10 milliliters or 2 teaspoons of the gargle. This is the amount you should gargle each time. Gargle up to four times a day, after meals and at bedtime. Hydrogen peroxide gargle should be kept at room temperature.

  2. Rinse the gargle in your mouth

    Rinse the gargle in your mouth for at least one minute. Hold the gargle over the sore throat to allow the antiseptic to cleanse your throat. Do not swallow the hydrogen peroxide. If more than 10 milliliters is accidentally swallowed, consult your doctor. Swallowing hydrogen peroxide may cause stomach discomfort.

  3. Spit out the gargle

    After one minute of gargling, spit out the gargle. Do not use the gargle for more than two days unless instructed by your doctor. Stop using hydrogen peroxide gargle if you experience worsening sore throat, pain, redness, swelling or fever, and consult your doctor. Children under the age of 3 should not use hydrogen peroxide gargle unless instructed by the doctor.
