What is CNH (chondrodermatitis) of the ear? 

CNH, also known as “Chondrodermatitis Nodularis Helicis Chronica”, 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 without tossing and turning, you are more likely to be affected by it.

Why did I develop CNH?

CNH (Chondrodermatitis) is caused by friction, pressure and time acting against the skin of your ear. As we age, our skin becomes less resilient and less able to repair itself quickly.

A lifetime of sleeping on your side with you pillow rubbing against your ear ultimately causes the skin to break down while the body’s ability to repair itself is outstripped. This is how a pressure sore is formed. 

A CNH pressure sore 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 continues to deteriorate and the severity of the sore increases from grades one through to four. 

CNH is essentially the same as a bed sore and as with a bed sore, the pressure must be removed in order for it to heal.


What are the current treatments for CNH?

The typically prescribed treatments remain steroid creams and surgery. These can be effective remedies, although in both cases you’re still left with a sore ear and you will still need to use your pillow at night. The fact is neither intervention addresses the root cause of the problem and recurrence rates remain stubbornly high.

You may well have experienced some of this for yourself. You may even have been referred here by your doctor. That’s great. We are not doctors and this isn’t a replacement for medical advice. We are people that had the same problem as you and found a very effective solution.

What is a CNH Pillow?

A CNH Pillow is a pillow with an integrated ear hole that alleviates friction and pressure from the ear. A CNH Pillow is an effective treatment for CNH because you need to remove all friction and pressure from the ear in order for CNH to heal. The best way of doing that is by using one of our specially designed ear pillows. These are the result of 7 years of continuous customer feedback and we continue to refine the formula with our patent pending designs. 

People can suffer for years with little relief from conventional approaches. However, when using The Original P.W.A.H® you will feel immediate comfort and after just a couple of weeks of use, your CNH should have resolved itself completely.

The Original P.W.A.H® was born from personal experience and necessity, and we are proud to say that they have been successfully used by thousands of people all over the world.
