How to minimise the risk of Tropical Ear this Summer Coming into the business end of summer I feel it is good time to discuss infections of the skin of the ear canal, which usually become increasingly common around this time of the year. Otitis Externa or more commonly known up here as Tropical Ear or Swimmers Ear are bacterial or fungal infections of the ear canal. They are particularly prevalent in the tropical areas and in the summer months because the hot, humid, moist conditions causes perspiration and moisture to develop in the ear canal making it an ideal environment for fungus and bacteria to grow. For those wearing hearing aids that occlude the ear and prevent air form circulating then Otitis Externa can be even more prolific. Like most other ear pathologies, prevention is better than the cure and there are

procedures that can be undertaken to minimising the risk of infection. Probably the biggest mistake most people make is the constant removal of wax or cleaning of the ears with cotton buds. Earwax, or cerumen, has several purposes but most importantly the oils in it have natural antifungal and antibacterial properties that can prevent the onset, as well as the sustainability, of ear infections within the ear canal. Further contributing to this is the role it plays in keeping the ear canal at a certain pH level, as its acidity is unfavourable for many microorganisms. The repeated removal of these oils, plus the further smearing of bacteria or fungus, makes the ear canal more susceptible to developing or spreading the infection. Also contributing to the susceptibility of Otitis Externa is

getting any water in the ears either from swimming in creeks, rivers, dams, pools or showering. If any bacteria or fungus is present in the water and it doesn’t drain and dry out then again it can provide the perfect environment for infection. Try and dry the ear out with the end of your towel or if you know you are susceptible to infection then use Aqua ear from a chemist. Aqua –ear is an alcohol based substance which evaporates any water in the ear canal. Again prevention is better than the cure and the use of a swim plug to prevent water from entering the ear canal is best you have a history of chronic Otitis Externa. For those wearing hearing aids the summer months is a real issue as certain hearing aids, which occlude the ear and do not allow air to circulate in the canal and sweating

Hope for Industrial Deafness Being exposed to dangerous levels of noise our working and social lives can catch up and result in a permanent hearing loss, or “industrial deafness”. Previously it was very hard to treat industrial deafness as standard hearing aids blocked the ear and prevented the use of good hearing in the low pitched areas. A new device called a Micro Open-fit hearing aid is now available that solves all the old problems associated with treating industrial deafness. These new devices leave the ear

open allowing you to use your good hearing in the low pitched areas, with the hearing aid only providing assistance to speech sounds in high pitched areas. The means a natural sound, no excessive background noise, and no loud chewing or voice echoes.

GRANT COLLINS Audiologist - Clarity Hearing Solutions

and consequent infection can occur. If possible try and see if your hearing aid can be fit as an open fitting where instead of blocking up the ear with a mould a small dome which leaves the ear open for the ear canal to receive aeration. If your devices are unable to be fit with an open fit then sterilization and venting is very important. Before and after you put your hearing aid in wipe the mould or shell over once with an alcohol wipe or a tissue with mentholated spirit to kill and bacteria or fungus, which may be present. If you have any creams or drops that are treating chronic Otitis Externa then they can be applied to the shell or mould as well. Also if possible see if your mould or shell can have a vent either put in or enlarged to allow more air to circulate.
