The Original Pillow With A Hole™ – Your Ear’s Best Friend.
For Ear Pressure Sores.
What is an ear pressure sore?
An ear pressure sore is more formally known as CNH, chondrodermatitis or Winkler’s Disease. If you have one, you will know about it. It is a painful lesion of the ear which refuses to heal, gradually increases in severity over time and causes immense pain and discomfort. It is especially problematic because it affects the ear and therefore your sleep.
If you have been diagnosed with it by your doctor you may have been prescribed steroid creams or been advised you may have to undergoe surgery.
Unfortunately; neither of these options are particularly attractive. Creams don’t address the root cause of the problem and surgery is painful and invasive. Both treatments have a recurrence rate of around 33%.
The good news is that both are unncessary. There is a better, more effective option.
How is an ear pressure sore formed?
It is simple. Such pressure sores are formed by continued friction and pressure against the skin of your ear. If you’re a habitual side-sleeper and sleep on the same side night after night, and do so for many years, the skin of the ear ultimately begins to break down and deteriorate. Furthermore; as you age your skin becomes less resilient and less able to repair itself. This is why CNH is more prevalent in older populations.
Once a pressure sore has begun to form, the skin will continue to deteriorate without medical intervention until an open wound forms. As mentioned previously, creams are not terribly effective because they don’t address the root cause of the problem – the pressure against the ear. In fact all the good work of the cream is undone at night as the ear rubs against the pillow. Surgery poses a similar dilemma. Yes, it will remove the pressure sore, but how does the ear heal when it again rubs against the pillow each night? And what of the recurrence?
Remove the Pressure, Heal the Ear.
The solution to the problem is as simple as the cause. If you remove the source of friction and pressure from the ear, your skin will have a chance to heal. Symptoms improve immediately and CNH will completely resolve in a matter of weeks. Not only that but if you keep the pressure off the ear, the sore can’t recur.
