If it is something on the outside like on the skin of your ears yes but on the inside no You might hurt your ears this way You are much better using some light oil (almond) on the inside. You can get earplugs to wear for swimming that should help.

That depends a great deal on a couple of things: Did you continue to eat that food? If so, then the answer depends on the quantity of rubbing alcohol. If it was a small amount, you should be fine. If it was a lot, you will probably get very sick. If it was a medium amount, you might get a little drunk, but your food will taste awful. In any case, you probably don't want to try to pour the rubbing alcohol back into the bottle and clean your ears out with it. That is a bad idea.
