Itchy ears

of Takeover from old pinboard »Mon 21 Sep 2009, 11:47 am

I don't know if you have that too, itchy ears? It's really bad sometimes. Unfortunately, I also often suffer from an external ear infection, then putting the hearing device in there is really painful, but what do you want some? The ears then feel sticky and crusty and are very sensitive to pressure. What are you doing then? It is often better after a few days, but the itching is actually always there. Do you feel the same? If so, how do you get a better grip on this?
Many Thanks
Ata

You have to see a dermatologist. Have them checked for fungi and bacterial infections. In addition, ask the dermatologist whether you have to do without Hg for a while and then have to start again with new fittings with the Hg. Otherwise it could be that you play ping-pong because the fittings are also infected.

I sometimes itch and feel damp and warm, but I have no pain, crusts or anything.

But once you have caught mushrooms, they will of course find an optimal climate if Hg is worn.

I have that problem too. For me, however, it was the case that the trigger was too tightly fitting ear pieces. In the case of severe hearing loss, it is always a tightrope walk, because the earmolds have to be as tight as possible due to the feedback.

But let's assume it's a mushroom. The earmolds would have to
can be disinfected.

Hello Ata,

I too often feel that my ears itch after long periods of wearing hearing aids. I usually manage by wearing the hearing aids alternately on the left or right every few hours and only contributing
"important" situations on both sides. For watching TV and listening to music
I use the earphones without hearing aids. I know this is not optimal, but an acceptable compromise.
It is also important to clean the fitting pieces well again and again.

Hello Ata,

I know that too, the itching, very often. Especially when I've got new adapters. However, I help myself with Ebenol, there is a little cortisone in it. This is an ointment that you can get in the pharmacy. I then apply it to the outer ear every evening, it can heal wonderfully overnight. That helps me a lot. And of course, clean the ear molds twice a week in the water.
You could get a better cortisone cream from a dermatologist if it's not a fungus.

Well, this time it was an external ear infection, it even radiated into the jaw joints, but it's okay again. I was given drops that contain antibiotics. Carrying the hearing aids was pure agony, but at the weekend I was consistent and left them outside and that helped a lot.

Actually, I always itch, that's everyday life. I have to try that with the oil, I can well imagine that it has a soothing effect.

thanks
Ata

Hello Ata,

maybe this is also due to incompatibility of the otoplastic material!
After the inflammation or the like has subsided, you should perhaps try other earmold material.

I've had the same problem for a long time. At the Ear Clinic in Solingen I was then told that I had an allergy to the pieces of ear paste. My health insurer then approved pieces of titanium paste, albeit after a long back-and-forth writing. I've been wearing this for 2 years without any problems. Maybe that would help you too?
