CNH, also known as Chondrodermatitis Nodularis Helicis, or ‘Winklers Disease’, is a pressure sore which forms on the ear. It can affect anyone of any age, but if you are over 55 and habitually sleep on your side, you are more likely to be affected by it.
Chondrodermatitis is caused by friction, pressure and time. As we age, our skin becomes less resilient and less able to repair itself quickly. A lifetime of sleeping on one side, rubbing your ear against a pillow, ultimately leads to a pressure sore forming.
CNH will initially look like a small red patch of skin. It will be warm, sore to the touch and may appear flaky. Over time, as pressure and friction continues to work against the ear, the skin deteriorates and a pressure sore forms. CNH is essentially the same as a bed sore and like with a bed sore, the pressure must be removed in order for it to heal.
Yet the typically prescribed treatment remains steroid creams and surgery. This is ineffective as it doesn’t address the root cause of the problem. This fact is clearly reflected in the recurrence rate of CNH, which remains stubbornly high even after surgical excision.
You may well have experienced this yourself. If you were referred here from your doctor, that’s great, you have an enlightened one. Give them our regards!
The simple fact is – you must remove the pressure for the ear to heal. And to do that you need a special Chondrodermatitis pillow such as ‘The Original Pillow with a Hole™.’
People can suffer for years with little relief from conventional approaches. However, when using this pillow you will feel immediate relief and after just a couple of weeks of use, your CNH will have resolved itself completely.
