Dear Yoli

There are a few possibilities - The skin might be irritated by the constant contact and pressure from the headset ( even more so if you are wearing insert earphones). Hygiene might be a problem, we constantly touch the earpieces and then insert it back in our ears - the earcanal is moist, warm, dark and humid. Be sure that your headset, earphones and hands are clean. It might also be advisable, to take little breaks in between. The other possibility is that your symptoms might not be related to your work - if it persists, please seek medical advice.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any further questions

Kind regards
