Do hearing aids cause ear infections?

Wearing hearing aids do not directly result in getting an ear infection. 

However, if you wear hearing aids and don’t clean them regularly, you may be more likely to get an infection. 

Contact your audiologist if you are unsure how and how often to clean your hearing aids.
