Question:

I recently purchased two hearing aids for myself. The problem is
since I have been wearing them, my ears hurt and have been very
tender. Is this something I will adjust to?
Answer:

Properly fit hearing aids should not cause your ears to hurt. It is fairly
common to have a slight tenderness when they are new, but this should
subside. I tell my patients that if they are bothered by the presence of their
hearing aids, they should return to have them checked. Often a slight
adjustment can remove a pressure point that is uncomfortable. If your ears
are tender, then your hearing aids may be either too tight or possibly have
an area that rubs your ear. You should return to where you purchased your
hearing aids and have them modified or remade to fit you better.
