Are there hypo-allergenic hearing aids for sensitive ears?

Answer:

Yes, some manufacturers use hypo-allergenic material shells for their in-the-ear and in-the-canal styles of hearing aids that seem to work well for many people with sensitive ears.

Even people without skin allergies may experience itching or irritation of their ears when they are first fitted with hearing aids. Your provider can recommend solutions—such as specially formulated lotions—that can help alleviate the symptoms without harming your hearing aids.
