Dear Claudy

There is a lot of possibilities here. I would strongly recommend that you take him to see an ENT specialist, who could help you with a diagnosis and some future planning. If you don't know any specialists in your area, please e-mail me at izabelle@widex.co.za and i will refer you. He will also need to go for a full hearing evaluation with an audiologist after he has been to see the ENT.

Please let me know if you require any further or more specific detail
