I suffered various forms of skin problems due to allergies and eczema over the years and I suspect this to be the reason for the following problem.
I use complete in channel hearing aids both sides (starkey for what that matter) and get really bad skin irritations, no matter how clean i keep my aids.
become itchy inside with some sweat like liquid running out and often turn into ear infection.
Keep in mind I live in China, and it’s kinda hard to just go to the shop and say “hey, try a different material”.
Can anyone recommend some kind of medication (cream or even tablets) to use with this?
At the moment, if I dont use the aids for a few days when things are bad, take anti-allergy tablets, and apply cortisone based cream in my ears, things clears up. But I cannot go without my hearing aids, having a job and all that. (Life can be so cruel huh?)
ps. Cool to see there’s forums for us deaf nuts.
