Miracell

Miracell, for dry itchy ears? So, I went and saw my audiologist last week about my broken FM transmitter. He said he'd take a look at it, and would send it in if necessary. He knows I don't make much money. As far as I know, he hasn't called yet, so I'm going to assume the FM had to be sent in.

Anyway, after we finished talking about the FM, I made mention of the hearing aid's ear hook putting pressure on the top of my ear. He said the other ear hook he had for the Supero is shorter, so he fixed the tubing. Then he got to looking inside my ear and noticed it was red and dry. He gave me a small sample bottle of Miracell to help with that problem. The left ear looked perfectly fine, but then, there's no hearing aid for the left! It's only the right ear that I usually have problems with. Now, I've used miracell in the past, which my audiologist recommended. It's an all natural sort of oil, and it helps with dry skins, and even helps with reducing scars so that they aren't as noticable in some cases. Definitely does help with the itchyness in the ear. Just put a bit of miracell onto a q-tip, and swish the qtip around in the ear a bit to get the miracell on the skin (just don't stick the q-tip too far in the ear!).

Hopefully my Hatis device arrives today. According to the tracking info on UPS.com, it should arrive today. We shall find out when I get home from work.

I have all the same gadgets as you and have tried a hatis. Didn't like the way it had to fit around my ears. Just recently I discovered I can use a CLA-7 loop with extra volume control. Works pretty well a lot of the time.

I have no idea what a CLA-7 loop is, but I'm way beyond happy with the hatis. I've got a hearing aid, and glasses... what's 1 more over my ear? :)

I had a hatis a long time ago and I had the same issues. It cut in and out!

The Miracell stuff sounds like a godsend for itchy ears! I was always and still am one of those that constantly uses a qtip! I know I know, doctor said never stick anything in your ears bigger then your elbow...

well as long as you don't stick the q-tip too far into the ear, I don't see the problem. :)
