There are often netizens asking me if wearing a hearing aid can cause inflammation of the ear canal. Many people suffer from hearing loss, but they think that wearing a hearing aid can cause inflammation of the ear canal and they are afraid to wear it. So, will this happen?
First of all, on this issue, it can be clearly stated that the correct wearing of the hearing aid will not cause inflammation of the ear canal.
If the hearing loss patient does not have inflammation, wearing a hearing aid is unlikely to cause inflammation. When you first wear it, you will feel a certain discomfort. This is not a symptom of inflammation. It is a normal phenomenon and needs to be adapted for a period of time. At the same time, in daily life, we also need to pay attention to the cleansing work of the ear canal and the cleaning of the hearing aid. After bathing or swimming, the water stains in the ear canal should be cleaned before wearing the hearing aid.
In another case, the hearing loss patient itself has a problem of inflammation. If the patient has inflammation, it is very likely to cause recurrence of inflammation after wearing the in-ear custom machine, because the customized machine is worn in the ear canal. Will make the ventilation in the ear canal not smooth, leading to recurrence.
Therefore, if you are a hearing loss patient with a history of otitis media, you must tell the fitter when you are fitting the hearing aid to let them know about your condition. For patients with a history of otitis media, we generally recommend them to use ventilation. Good ear-back machine, and these patients pay more attention to the cleaning of hearing aids and ear canals than the average person, to prevent infection and inflammation.
When you wear it, you should let your ear ventilate. When you take a bath, you should wear an earplug to prevent the water in the ear canal from causing infection.
If our patients are unable to wear hearing aids during the episode of otitis media, wearing a hearing aid will cause pus to flow into the hearing aid and cause damage to the hearing aid parts. Therefore, we should treat the inflammation first and wait until the inflammation is eliminated. After that, wear a hearing aid.
