These pillows are born from personal experience. We created The Original P.W.A.H™ to treat that most painful of conditions, CNH. We know that this is the best pillow for CNH because we use it ourselves. It gives us great pleasure to know that it is helping so many people around the world.
CNH, also known as chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis, or ‘winklers disease’, is a pressure sore of the ear. If you have CNH you will know that it is particularly painful and it doesn’t let you rest easily on your pillow. It can affect anyone of any age, however if you are older and habitually sleep on your side, you may be more prone to it.
A person develops CNH because their pillow rubs against their ear during the night. Eventually this pressure and friction causes the skin of the ear to break down and a small red patch of skin becomes evident. Over time, as pressure and friction continues to act against the ear, the tissue breaks down further and a painful lesion or pressure sore forms.
This is CNH and now you’re faced with a dilemma; continue sleeping on that ear and aggravate the condition or sleep on a different side, which is often just as difficult a task. It sounds scary but you’re not alone, and the Pillow With A Hole can help.
CNH does not usually resolve itself due to the continuing friction and pressure of your pillow against your ear. It will therefore require some form of treatment. The best treatment is to remove pressure from the ear by using one of these methods:
After much testing and consideration of the feedback received, we feel justified in saying that this is the ideal CNH pillow. It will give you a great, pain free night’s sleep.
People can suffer for years with CNH with little relief from conventional approaches. When using the Pillow With A Hole you will feel immediate relief and after just a month of using our pillow the condition will have resolved itself completely. Remove the pressure and your body does the rest.
