Do your ears tend to get sore or irritated? Is it then painful to insert the earmolds? It happens to me. Because of my need for tight earmolds to offset whistling from my powerful BTE hearing aids and my tendency to sleep with my hearing aids in the ear, they do get sore at times. And if I continue to insert earmolds in the ears before the soreness goes away, they’ll become infected and the pain can rise to excruciating levels.
