Ask an Audiologist – Itchy Ears and Hearing Aids
Often people complain of itchy ears and there can be a number of reasons for it. Hearing Solutions Audiologist, Tracy Saunders answers one enquiry about this annoying occurence.
Ask an Audiologist…
What’s the best hearing aid option for me, as I get very itchy ears wearing my hearing aids?
The hearing aid options would depend on your exact hearing loss.
I would likely recommend a receiver-in-canal (RIC) style hearing aid. These hearing aids are mostly invisible and hide most of the hearing aid’s electronic parts (computer chip, microphone, battery, etc) behind your ear. Therefore, there is little actually in your ear to cause the itch.
We also sell Miracell (also known as ProEar) which is a great product for itchy ears.
