I have to be screamed at before i can asnwer.I went to the Dr and was told that my ears are dry hence i seldom clean them with an earbud, could it be the dryness is affecting my hearing or is something else.

Dear Carol

The important thing is to have your hearing evaluated by an Audiologist. If you don't know of someone in your area, please let me know and i will gladly refer you (izabellepieterse@gmail.com). Also, please refrain from cleaning your ears all together with the exception of the outer ear. The earcanal has a natural cleaning process.

Please let me know if you need any further information

Kind regards
