Most people get the odd earache every so often, but when it’s been constant and started to have an effect on your sleep, it’s likely you’ll be wanting to try everything to ease the ache. Lying on your ear at night means you’ll be applying pressure, which causes additional discomfort, especially with a painful ear infection.
Thankfully, there are methods for earache relief, and one method of relief in particular is through the use of a specially designed pillow. The Ear Pillow is a specially shaped pillow which has been created to provide relief from ear pains whilst you are lying down and sleeping.
The Ear Pillow benefits from an elevated shape which helps to reduce tension that can occur around the neck and shoulders, and there is a space in the centre of the pillow for your ear to rest against without any pressure being added it.
The pillow has also been specially designed to fit the contour of the shoulders and back to ensure maximum comfort.
This pillow has had success in use within hospitals in North Wales since 2008, providing an effective relief for severe ear pain, such as Chondrodermatitis nodularis chronica helicis (CNH). CNH is a fairly common, yet painful condition which can be exacerbated through the individual sleeping on a hard pillow.
Ear pillows can also be used after ear surgery, either in hospitals or at home to prevent postoperative complications following the operation and allow the ear to heal properly during sleep.
When it comes to the material of the ear pillow, you have the choice of either the cluster filled or the foam filled pillow. The cluster filled pillow has been designed to offer ultimate comfort, with a luxury quilted zip-off cover and cluster polyester filling.
Cluster polyester filling has been designed based on scientific research, and features separate pearl sizes polyester pieces, giving the texture and feeling of a loose feather filling. These polyester pieces do not matt together, preventing your pillow from becoming lumpy and hard over time.
The cluster filled pillows can also be machine washed and tumble dried for added hygiene.
Ear pillows come in a range of sizes and styles to suit all ages, ranging from child size to adult pillows. If you suffer from ear pain and are desperate to try a new ear ache relief, the ear pillow may just be what you are looking for.
